Man Dies Of Rabbit Flu In England

John Freeman, 29, a farmer from Aspall, Suffolk, England, is almost certainly the first human to catch rabbit flu and die. His mother has issued a warning. Freeman was infected with Parteurella multocida, became seriously ill and died within four days of showing symptoms.


His mother, Joan, said people need to know that this potentially fatal disease exists. She described her son as a “strong, strapping, healthy country man”. She added that she was amazed so little was known about this disease among farming folk.

Joan Freemans said “Once it is in the bloodstream, that’s it. If you get it unwittingly, not from an animal bite, the first thing you know about it is when you get a fever and by then you are the walking dead. Doctors did everything they could but it was too late, it is such a virulent disease. Everyone is so appalled that he should die in this way. It’s absolutely shocking.”

He did not get it from a bite, how did he get it ? Is it airborne, or are rabbits a substitute for sheep ?

rabbits are easier to take with you on the tractor.

You get a good grip on the rabbitt’s ears…. To carry them with you, of course.

We have too many heroes lost and not enough workout days to commemorate them. I think it’s fitting to always think of the men and women in service, whether military or peace officers and public safety, as we do our workouts. A bit of motivation to throw a little of our sweat and maybe a drop of blood on the floor in their honor.

1, Go ahead and eat rabbits if you are feeling lucky
2. Then proceed immediately home, strip and do the whole fish oil skin rubbing thiing to make sure you are covered…

Oh. That’s just WRONG!

Yeah, and don’t do the fish oil before work or you won’t get the rabbit to go on the tractor with you.

Oh…I don’t know. I think the rabbits are a little freaky and might dig the fish oil.
