I've just returned from a quick 30 mile blat round some country lanes. During my travels, I came across a rabbit sitting in the middle of the road. It made no attempt to scamper off when I went past on my bike, or when I stopped and approached it on foot. Its little nose was twitching and it appeared to look at me with clear, discharge-free eyes, but there were one or two telltale small bald patches where fur should have been. I suspect that it was in the early stages of myxomatosis. I picked it up and gently placed it in some long grass underneath a hedge. Did I do right, or should I have dispatched it?
