New viral epidemic kills rabbits

Ralph Zimmerman, the New Mexico state veterinarian, where the new outbreak started, said his origin was unknown. But, he added, imported domestic rabbits are a possibility; the disease was first identified in France in 2010 and spread across Europe and then to Australia, where it swept the continent in about a year and a half. An epidemic at a New York veterinary clinic in March of this year killed 11 pet rabbits.
