Since December 2019, the outbreak of the deadly virus has brought our world to a complete standstill.

And after it was confirmed that the virus had originated from the sale and consumption of wild animals, thoughts quickly turned towards our own furry friends.

And with us humans being as over-protective as we are, people went to extreme lengths to protect their beloved pets.

Back in February, reports came in that out of panic of catching the virus, owners in China threw their pets from rooftops.

5 cats were thrown to their deaths in Shanghai, and 1 dog was found dead in Tianjin City in the Hebei Province.

It was earlier confirmed by experts that there has been no evidence at all to suggest that any animals, including pets, livestock, or wildlife, might be a source of COVID-19 infection.

So it has been further recommended to wash hands at all times when around pets and other animals, and to take pets for regular check-ups at the vets.

Shocking news has just come in about one of the residents at the Bronx Zoo in New York City.

This news comes weeks after the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service released information stressing that animals cannot pass the virus onto humans.

The diagnosis was confirmed by the USDA’s National Veterinary Services Lab, and they confirmed that other animals of theirs that have shown symptoms of late, including 3 other tigers and 4 lions, which have developed a dry cough.

The organization said that they feel confident that the big cats will go on to make a full recovery.
