No Laughing Matter: Hyenas at Denver Zoo Test Positive for COVID-19
"Animal Care staff describe that both animals have extremely mild symptoms, including slight lethargy, some nasal discharge and occasional coughs," the Zoo noted in a release.
Today we confirmed that two of our hyenas—Ngozi, 22, and Kibo, 23—tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19. The results were confirmed at the CSU Veterinary Diagnostic Lab in Fort Collins, CO, as well as the @USDA's National Veterinary Services Laboratory.— Denver Zoo (@DenverZoo) November 5, 2021
