    What happens if you eat a myxomatosis rabbit

    Mixxy wasnt created by man its just been purposely released in many locations around the world to controll rabbit population..... i think John is getting mixxy confused with RHD which was created by man and is just as bad if not worse for the rabbits than mixxy is.
