Blind Rabbit

Ogden - Back Lane. I walked into the plantation to find an immature Rabbit about 4 metres in front of me struggling to get off the footpath and over a small wall. I got very good views of  it and could clearly see both eyes were shut. Myxamatosis strikes again methinks.

Saw a similarly affected rabbit just outside Midgley last week, a dreadful disease, surely there is an alternative way to control rabbits? Maybe leave Buzzards alone and they will sort it?
