Can Rabbit Fever be Used by Terrorists?

A rare illness is making a comeback and doctors are beginning to get a little nervous.

The CDC says cases of Tularemia, or more commonly called Rabbit Fever, has almost doubled in cases this year.

The illness is found in rabbits and rodents.

Humans get sick from breathing in the bacteria or handling dead animals.

Rabbit Fever causes sudden fever, headaches, and muscle aches.

If left untreated, it can be deadly.

Rabbit Fever illnesses are tracked by the government because there is concern it can be used as an airborne bio-terrorism weapon.
