Like some weird dystopian movie

This might have gone better under one of our other conversations so the mods can feel free to move it.

A new study has found widespread coronavirus infection among white-tailed deer in Iowa and researchers are concerned the species could potentially become a reservoir for the virus.

I hope to take a dent out of said population in about two weeks.  I will try and do my part.
I had thought they had previous reports way earlier of finding it in zoo animals.  Not good news but it is what it is. Thanks for posting.
Cheers

https://www.republicworld.com/world-news/us-news/denver-zoo-reports-covid-19-infection-in-hyenas-11-lions-and-2-tigers-test-ve-as-well.html

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/11/07/us/hyenas-covid-positive-denver-zoo.html

In a first, two hyenas at the Denver Zoo tested positive for COVID-19. According to the National Veterinary Services Laboratories (NVSL), samples from several animals at the zoo, including the spotted hyenas, were collected for testing purposes after a couple of lions at the facility fell ill.

Zoo personnel informed Associated Press that the hyenas-- 22-year-old Ngozi and 23-year-old Kibo-- had been experiencing mild COVID-19 symptoms, including prolonged lethargy, some nasal discharge and dry cough. The samples of the said hyenas were apprehended to be positive at a lab at Colorado State University and were confirmed by the national lab.

Might be one of Kathy's research projects.  Since deer don't wear masks and practice social distancing the deer should attain herd immunity in one hunting season.
Or it could be a hoax spread by  bleeding heart liberals to scare off hunters from killing bambi.

I don't know what to make of this.  Not my area.  I hope someone eventually will comment somewhere but I have seen nothing yet.  Gut says it's a bad sign, but I had pizza last night   :cheesy:

Hi Folks,

Yes. Some animals are dying due to covid.

https://middleeast.in-24.com/Coronavirus/413461.html

In the 35 second video I saw, the little Corgi was still running, suffering under furniture, while "authorities" TRIED to club it to death.
Let's not talk about baby seals. IT'S A PET!

Some of these people are brutal. Some of us are brutal. That's why Fauci went there. What was it that Fauci did to dogs again? In the advance of science?
