No Rabbits at Fair This Year
To all Open Division Rabbit Fair Participants:
We are sad to hear the news that there has been a confirmed case of the Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus 2 (RHDV2) on Orcas Island. Due to the fatal and extremely contagious nature of the disease, we have been advised by the Washington State Veterinarian (WSDA), Amber Itle, that we should not hold a rabbit show at the San Juan County Fair this year.
The WSDA press release can be found at this link.
For more information about RHDV2, and ways you can protect your animals, please visit this link.
It is important to note that RHD poses no risk to human health or other animals.
Note: The Open Division Cavy show will still be held.
If you have any questions, please call or email:
Jennifer Rigg, Open Rabbit/Cavy superintendent
