There are an estimated 300,000,000 rabbits in the UK and this is one of them:

Despite an outbreak of Myxomatosis in 1955 that wiped out 99% of the UK's wild rabbits they have made a significant comeback and are now a source of food for the local foxes, buzzards and stoats.

  1. It's great that wild rabbits are making a comeback. I'm only 18 but I have noticed a decrease in the number of rabbits having Myxomatosis, which is great.

    I was at Yorkshire Sculpture Park early last year, there was a rabbit less that a metre away from me with Myxomatosis and it didn't know I was there. It was rather upsetting.
