Does anyone know what these black lumps on a bunny were?

So I saw a wild bunny, and it had two black lumps on it, one hanging off it’s chin and another on its side. It looks to be a pretty small bunny. But these black lumps had the size & shine of a bunny’s eyeball, and I was curious to know what was going on. Is it some type of tumor/cancer? Or is it a birth defect? Is it carrying a contagious disease? My dog went near it, and was by him for about 15 seconds before I saw the bunny, so I want to know if it was potentially carrying a harmful disease.

    Ticks. There is nothing you can do for a wild rabbit unless you are in Australia. Remember, they "breed like rabbits" so the demise of any individual is of almost no consequence.

    I agree, definitely ticks. When feeding for long amounts of time, they can expand their bodies the size of a gumball. When they get that big, eventually they drop from their host. I'd suggest to leave the bunny be, it'll lose those ticks sooner than you know.

      Can't take wild bunny to the vet. It's wild. How would you catch it?

    Possibly ticks.
