Rabbits killed by RHD

After the illegal introduction of RHD in 1997, the New Zealand government accepted that the virus could no longer be controlled and legalised it. Landcare groups and farmers throughout the country were able to buy the RHD virus and release it. This Landcare researcher is with a group of rabbits killed by RHD.
