Jesus Mary and Holy St. Joseph. Just when you think that we’ve reached peak Covid-19 hysteria, a covidiot raises the bar again. At 8.11pm local time last night, Denver Zoo took a shot at the title by announcing that it would give covid jabs to some of its animals from next week.
Someone Tweeting on behalf of the zoo said:
“The safety and well-being of our animals is always a top priority at Denver Zoo, and there is evidence that primates, carnivores, and other mammals can be affected by COVID-19.
These vaccinations are a part of our overall strategy to protect our animals from infection from COVID, and will be monitoring each vaccinated individual closely after they receive their dose.”
Zoologists said they had been working with the veterinary vaccine company Zoetis to receive doses for the animals. Primates and carnivores will be first on the list.
The veterinary vaccine is being developed separate from the ones for human use.
Transmission is rare between humans and other species, but there have been several documented cases of Covid in large cats, monkeys and certain rodent populations.
The covidiot bar has been well and truly raised. Transmission isn’t just rare between animals and humans, it’s non-existent. Over the past year and a half there have been zero COVID-19 cases among animals at the Denver zoo. That’s right, zero.
The zoo made that admission to CBS Denver. Not a single case in a single animal, but they will jab them anyway. Oakland Zoo (pictured) has already begun jabbing some of its animals with the Zoetis jab. Guess what? Oakland hasn’t had a single positive case in an animal either.
Stop the world, I want to get off.
We recently confirmed that some Denver Zoo animals will be receiving vaccinations against COVID-19. Denver Zoo has been approved to use the Zoetis Inc. vaccine, which is specifically intended for use in animals. 🧵1/6 pic.twitter.com/iUtlWFd6ta
