https://www.smithsonianmag.com...dly-virus-180974961/ Back when I was a kid in New Mexico, tularemia was the big concern. https://www.cdc.gov/tularemia/...ssymptoms/index.html You wouldn't attempt to eat a cottontail that was killed in warm weather months. Life's more serious today.

I believe this virus was also deliberately introduced in Australia to try and kill off the non-native rabbits there. It hasn't worked well but it has been a problem for those who raise domestics for meat.
