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

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.
