    The zoo will probably kill it to prevent it from spreading the disease.

    Just because it has the virus does not mean it will be affected the same way humans are. But an animal that carries the virus can spread it to humans.

    If any zoo can treat the problem properly, Bronx Park can.

    It is reported that Panthera tigris jacksoni (Malayan Tiger) at the Bronx Zoo, operated by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), as well as P. t. tigris (Amur Tiger) and P. leo (Lion) have been infected with SARS-CoV-2 resulting in the disease COVID-19. It is reported by WCS that the animals are expected to make a complete recovery. They say a zookeeper without symptoms, who is either unknown or they are not identifying, was the source of the infection.

    I thought you were trolling at first, but indeed an asymptomatic Zoo employee is said to have brought the virus in.  This is scary, knowing that animals are being infected.

    But by all accounts I can find, the big cats are expected to fully recover.
