Health and safety measures are in place, so you can enjoy culture with confidence. The diagnosis of the tiger, named Nadia, represented “the first time, to our knowledge, that a animal has gotten sick from COVID-19 from a person,” Paul Called, chief veterinarian for the Bronx Zoo, said April 5.
But the U.S. Department of Agriculture subsequently updated an online database with information that a lion in New York had also been confirmed as testing positive for the virus on April 15. And shortly thereafter the Wildlife Conservation Society, the nonprofit that runs the Bronx Zoo, issued a press release announcing that four additional tigers and three lions had tested positive.
After developing a dry cough in late March, Nadia, a four-year-old Malayan tiger, was tested for the virus on April 2, according to Called. At that time Nadia’s sister, two Siberian tigers, and three African lions also had coughs and a loss of appetite.
Dan Ashe, president of the American Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), commended Called’s team for their quick action to test Nadia. Ashe said that the AZA has helped distribute USDA information that cautions about the potential virus transfer from humans to fields, and Bronx Zoo information about increased safety measures, including wearing masks and goggles to protect animals and keeping a distance of six feet whenever possible.
It was updated on April 22 with the news that four additional tigers, three lions, and two domestic cats also tested positive for the coronavirus. It is the flagship menagerie of the largest network of metropolitan zoos in the country and the center of the Wildlife Conservation Society, New York.
Presently, the zoo stretches out across 265 acres of man made Himalayan Highlands and African Plains, and is home to about 4,100 animals. A safari through its open plains gives the visitor a rare chance to enjoy surprisingly intimate views of the wildlife.
