Baby wild rabbit

Young wild rabbits are infected with myxomatosis from fleas from the mother that live in the nest. This rabbit had just emerged so it was about 4 weeks old. It was caught by a dog. Although there were no injuries from the dog, the swollen eyelids indicate that it was in the initial stages of myxomatosis.
