Are some animals cursed, like this rabbit?
It is true that animals or call them pets are amazing. I don’t really know but this particular pet was over the top based on the fact of what you are about to see.
Again, I don’t know if it is diseased but some believe the animal is cursed. If yes, by who? By the mother or father rabbit, or by nature?
Let’s see the poor rabbit that will make your skin crawl to survival.
Why She Is Like This
Finally, the poor rabbit is diseased. The disease is known as verruca (warts), which are caused by Human Papilloma Virus. It’s the leading cause of cervical, as well as other anogenital cancers.
They are tumors, and from what wikipedia said they are horns that grow from hair follicles.
There is another related disease known as Shope papilloma virus.
The facts about it.
The Shope papilloma virus (SPV), also known as cottontail rabbit papilloma virus (CRPV) or Kappapapillomavirus 2, is a papillomavirus which infects certain leporids, causing keratinous carcinomas resembling horns, typically on or near the animal’s head.
The carcinomas can metastasize or become large enough to interfere with the host’s ability to eat, causing starvation.
Richard E. Shope investigated the horns and discovered the virus in 1933, an important breakthrough in the study of papillomaviruses and neoplasia. The virus was originally discovered in cottontail rabbits in the Midwestern U.S., but can also infect brush rabbits, black-tailed jackrabbits, snowshoe hares, and European rabbits.
With the above being said, amazingly, this disease is not aligned to rabbits alone, even fish get it too. In fish, it is called Carp pox; usually, they look like waxy growths on fish.
