Oh, and I wanted to point out that this isn't an epidemic that is threatening all of the rabbits there. The few that are sick are sequestered nicely and those that are near them aren't showing any signs of contagion. I just wanted to point that out so that anyone who may be visiting or thinking about it aren't scared that they're going to catch the black death for their own buns.
Afterall, I'm working on them and have no fear for mine - although Maryann shouldn't count in this equation as she's immune to all terrestial born viruses.
BTW, a little note for those that work at resuces. If you take a baby bun from a litter to snuggle for a while, make sure you remember what litter they came from. Putting them back in the wrong one causes such an interesting reaction.
Yup, I'm a dolt. But all buns are fine without any injury - just a whole lot of non-happy binky popcorning
