I was under the belief that hares and rabbits were completely unrelated species, in that it would have just as much chance jumping species to bovine or hominid as it would to lepus?

Headcase I had not realised that it could jump species but that would explain why the few hares we had around here have just vanished

Well whether or not, it appears it has done in Europe. maybe because hare and rabbits spent a lot of time together, feeding in the same spots.. exchanging body fluids for the same patch of chewed off grass..

Its a virus and quite a few virus can infect different species.. eg rabies, ebola or swine flu. If a dog bites you in Thailand go to the hospital, and dont handle monkeys or let them sit on your head even when someone offers you one..  Grin
