CARROLLTON AND HIGGINSVILLE, Mo. — Carroll County fair organizers announced today, June 25, the fair’s rabbit show has been canceled, due to the spread of Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus Serotype 2, which is potentially fatal to both domestic and wild rabbits. The show was to take place on July 8. Ray County has also canceled its rabbit show, scheduled later in July.
