These rabbits have recently been found in a villager’s home in Chengkou County of Southwest China’s Chongqing Municipality.
The earless rabbits have bald heads and gray eyes instead of hairy heads and red eyes. The owner of the rabbits said that the mother rabbit used to give normal birth and only this time the new-born were different. The weird news attracted villagers far and near. “Maybe it is because of genetic variation,” said one resident.
But now we have very disturbing reports about a 35% spike in infant mortality in Northwest cities since the meltdown in Fukushima. Dr. Janette Sherman and Joseph Mangano wrote: U.S. babies are dying at an increased rate. The recent CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report indicates that eight cities in the northwest U.S. (Boise ID, Seattle WA, Portland OR plus the northern California cities of Santa Cruz, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Jose and Berkeley) reported the following data on deaths among those younger than one year of age: 4 weeks ending March 19, 2011: 37 deaths (avg. 9.25 per week); 10 weeks ending May 28, 2011: 125 deaths (avg. 12.50 per week)
"Earless" bunnies are not uncommon. Apparently the mother rabbit gets over enthusiastic about cleaning them after birth and "cleans" their ears right off.
