Myxomatosis is cruel disease which rabbits in the UK die from each year. It is not acceptable that such a disease is left unchecked in the UK due to its horrendous symptoms - it is pure torture for any rabbit infected upto 2 weeks in many cases and longer. If it infected cats and/or dogs there would be a public outrage but because it infects only rabbits and they suffer terrible symptoms mostly out of sight the disease is hardly mentioned in the public domain.

I want the Government to actively discuss all the options open to it to combat/control this disease including vaccinations for the Rabbit population.
