How do Tigers and Lions in zoos contract COVID?


Recommended Posts

Aren't they under the strictest of lockdowns?

Firstly they are 100% confined to a cage, outdoos, and presumably practice the minimum 2 metres social distancing from the zoo keepers.

The only interaction they have is getting their food delivered and maybe a vet who probably wears PPE anyway

So how the fuck do they get infected with COVID

It's a good question to ask the believers and lockdown lovers. Either lockdowns don't work, the tests are bullshit, or the zoo keepers are all just rolling around in the cages all day

It is a very difficult jump across the species for a virus, just like AIDS. 

Scientists reckon a man must have fucked a dog that ended up in the zoo's food chain...

Sorry, you're all barking up the wrong tree here.

The answer is obvious; and when you spot it, there's no going back.

Just ask yourself the question, "Cui bono?"

The rest is simple deduction.

There is evidently a highly secretive squad of elite Chinese marksmen who break into zoos at the dead of night in order to shoot infected mice* at the tigers.

A few days later, they turn up disguised as hazardous waste removal experts to dispose of the tiger's corpse.

The tiger is then turned into a range of Chinese medicinal products.

 

 

 

*Other rodents are available, but a capybara trebuchet might be a tad impractical.

Certainly gives you paws for thought.

My other half has an interest in zoos and knows of two cases in the news:

- The Bronx Zoo - New York. In the early days of Covid-19, 4 tigers and 3 lions got it. Caught from an asymptomatic keeper. One showed mild signs, the others no signs. They tested them all. 

- Barcelona Zoo - Four lions, showed upper respiratory symptoms and then a mild cough.  2 staff members tested positive. 

Probably passed on when preparing/cutting up meat. Keepers wear gloves when cutting up meat but may not have had gloves on when starting such as picking up the knife, chopping board, container for meat.

Other animals:

Ferrets in Denmark that got it.

Dogs can get it but show few symptoms.  Apparently in a care home in America, many old people had Covid-19. The home had companion dogs living there. The dogs showed no symptoms, They decided to test them and all the dogs were positive.

Camels can also get Covid-19

It is apparently all to do with how well the virus is able to binds in the hosts body cells.

It is more likely to bind in body cells of bats, pangolins, camels, big cats and humans.

It is less likely to bind in some animals such as rats, mice, chickens.

Pigs can receive the virus but they don't have a productive infection. 

Covid-19 fits best to humans.

I've seen Outbreak and Jurassic world on TV over the holidays.

It'll be a great new film - there's an outbreak of COVID-2076 in Jurassic Park 2077, where the part human, part dinosaur, part cyborgs break out and start eating people. Dustin Hoffman shouts - It's airborne!

How different genetically are big cats and little cats ie domestic cat? Makes no sense yet again.

I thought this would be a covid joke thread! I cannot think of the punch line though.

That's Right!

 

That's Right! That's Right! That's Right! I really love your tiger plight!

That wheeze, That wheeze, That wheeze, That wheeze, 

I really love your Tiger Sneeze!
