WASHINGTON (BLOOMBERG) - A snow leopard died after displaying symptoms similar to Covid-19 at a US zoo housing a confirmed case of the virus, officials announced on Friday (Oct 8).
Baya, aged two and a half years, exhibited signs of a cough followed by "inappetence and lethargy" and died on Thursday, according to the Great Plains Zoo in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
A necropsy is planned.
One of the zoo's Amur tigers tested positive for the virus that causes Covid-19 this week, the zoo said.
Other big cats have exhibited symptoms.
