The zoo’s chief veterinarian, Paul Calle, said the tiger had been attacked by a zoo worker. Nadia’s body showed coronavirus symptoms from last month.
Zoo authorities say the tiger Nadia is very ill. In the meantime separate ambulances have been arranged for her and medical treatment is underway.
Meanwhile, after the illness of the tiger, his sister Azula and three other tigers also have symptoms of coronavirus. Already, there has been a change in the food interests of those tigers. The infected Nadia has been kept under close observation. Zoo authorities are hoping he will recover soon.
However, there is a tendency for the tiger and lion to eat some disinterest in the zoo. Zoo authorities, however, said the animals other than tigers and lions are perfectly healthy.
He will be monitored regularly for the virus to see exactly how the sick tiger’s body is functioning. Information received by the zoo will be disseminated to other zoos and animal experts, the Bruns authorities said. The world will find information about the dynamics of the novel coronavirus and its effects on animals.
Note that visitor access to all zoos in the United States has been banned since March 8 as a precautionary measure against the outbreak of coronavirus.
