Rabbits in South Carolina, Connecticut suddenly drop dead from lethal virus

A herd of rabbits suddenly died at a homestead in Greenville County, South Carolina. It is the first time the vicious virus has been detected in the state. Symptoms include anorexia, lethargy, conjunctivitis, respiratory signs and bloodstained noses or mouths. RHDV2 was first detected in 2018 and has quickly become an epidemic in Western states. The disease was also detected earlier this month in Connecticut after 13 rabbits died in 24 hours, with the 14th succumbing to the virus two days later.
