Vermin control, Rabbits, Myxomatosis
First Page Number
Last Page Number
THERE have been many reports of outbreaks of myxomatosis this season. Some of them have been of a high killing intensity and farmers have been led to hope that the disease has returned to wipe out the rabbit population altogether. The truth of the matter is that myxomatosis is now so well spread over the country that probably every rabbit here will be affected by the virus at some stage of its existence. This applies to the rest of the Australian mainland and, in every case where blood samples have been taken from rabbits, signs of the disease have been found.
