**insert joke about Americans being ignorant of European cultural diversity**
I'll go grab my coat before the US send an army after me for "being anti-American and thus a terrorist". I mean yeah I can be a terror sometimes (don't even try asking some of my exes, they'll just scream and have a mental breakdown if you're lucky) but that's a different matter entirely.
Back to the seriousness:
During the mixi epidemic in some summer of the late 90s, it took several weeks for the rabbit corpses to decay. This was the height of summer in the most southerly part of the UK. It was a pretty hot summer too if I remember right.
