Washington Hunters Warned of Tularemia in Small Mammals
Spotting of the liver may be due to Tularemia or another infection.
Tularemia is a bacteria and complete cooking most likely would destroy it. However Tularemia is transmissible from game to people by air; therefore it is not advisable to consume rabbits that show signs of Tularemia (white or yellow spots on the liver) cooked or otherwise.

What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
