Based on Authority given to the State Veterinarian in 2 O.S. §,6-2 I hereby ban all rabbit exhibitions for 90 days.
The purpose of this exhibition ban is to allow Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry time to assess the scope and range of Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease in the region surrounding Oklahoma. It is essential to stop commingling of rabbits until we have a better understanding of the disease prevalence and better tools to prevent disease transmission.
This ban will end September 24, 2020 unless evidence shows that it should be extended.
