100+ bunnies seized after testing positive for syphilis
One of my favorite things about syphilis (T. pallidum) is how fragile and delicate it is. It can't be grown in culture and resists easy models for experimentation. It's fussy and requires a live animal model, which is often rabbits.
Poor Brooklyn Bunnies! But with a little penicillin and some TLC, I'm sure they'll be ready for Spring in no time.
