I've been hearing about cats catching coronavirus and now there is news that a tiger has it.
A tiger at the Bronx Zoo in New York City has tested positive for COVID-19 after apparent exposure to an infected worker.
The four-year-old female Malayan tiger named Nadia was tested out of an abundance of caution after developing a dry cough and a decrease in appetite, the zoo's parent company, the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), said in a statement Sunday.
Six other cats at the zoo, including Nadia's sister Azul, two Amur tigers and three African lions, were also suffering possible coronavirus symptoms, WCS said.
