    Tularemia is typically self-limiting and not generally seen as a disease that presents significant limitations to wildlife conservation.

A. Tularemia, also known as “rabbit fever,” is a disease caused by the bacterium Francisella tularensis. Tularemia is typically found in animals, especially rodents, rabbits, and hares.

      Ballard stresses that RHDV-2 is not the same thing as tularemia, also known as “rabbit fever,” a well-known bacterial disease that can be passed to humans. “Neither virus strain of RHDV is known to infect humans, other pets or livestock outside of the rabbit and hare family,” Ballard said. The bacteria that causes tularemia is a gram-negative coccobacillus called Francisella tularensis. It can be diagnosed based on history, symptoms, blood tests, and blood cultures. The disease is treatable by the antibiotics streptomycin or tetracycline. Tularemia, also known as rabbit fever, is a bacterial disease that occurs in humans and animals.

      Tularemia, also known as rabbit fever, is a relatively rare bacterial disease, with only about reported cases per year over the last two decades. But since September , cases have been reported.
