About a month ago, my youngest son found a dead rabbit in the woods while camping and brought me to the spot to show it. The rabbit looked like it had just died and didn't show any obvious cause of death.
Even though denying having touched it, I made him wash his hands since I suspected he might have touched it nonetheless. I reiterated never to touch dead animals found in the woods.
He later admitted having petted it briefly.
Are there any diseases that could have been transmitted through the brief fur to skin contact? Any ones that I still need to worry about?
This is in The Netherlands, more specifically in the province of Zeeland.
