Leishmaniasis in Israel

We have this ugly rodent, the rock bunny,   שפני הסלע  that  is a protected animal, cannot be hunted or killed. It carries the bacteria causing Leishmaniasis, a leper-like disease that had been eliminated decades ago. The multiplication of this biting pest means the return of disease.  People is thirsty for "Nature" and believe - from children's books - that it is benevolent and harmless. But Nature is indifferent to us.
