Has anyone seen this? May need to think about our pets!

Apart from the obvious sense of not getting as close as 2 metres from a tiger, I think it would be our pets who had something to worry about - not their humans!

It was already reported that cats get it but dogs dont

There isnt any evidence yet of cats giving it back to humans

People have been dumping their pets at animal charities foe last 2 weeks because of this

The keepers do get close MawB, that’s why several have lost their lives in our local zoo over the last 30 years. The keeper in this instance must have been fairly close to pass the virus on. I just found it interesting.
