Video Shows Zoo Officials Giving Skunks Covid-19 Shots


Well this is a bit of a stinky situation!

A video that was released by the Associated Press showed zoologists in Florida giving a skunk a Covid-19 shot.

Officials at ZooTampa announced that certain animals that are at high risk of contracting Covid-19 will be giving Covid-19 shots.

Liberals keep arguing that if everyone gets vaccinated that Covid-19 will almost disappear like Smallpox but that’s untrue and even zoologists know this because animals can be reservoirs; that’s why their being vaccinated.

So unless every single animal on the earth is vaccinated(which is impossible) the Covid-19 virus will not be eradicated.

Many users took a jab at those who got vaccinated and joked that they took the skunk vacine:

CBS Tampa had more on the story:

We all know that people aren’t the only ones that can catch COVID-19, animals can too! ZooTampa recently announced they will be vaccinating some of their animals in an effort to protect them against the virus.

Officials at ZooTampa say they have a full list of species that are most susceptible to COVID-19, and that’s the order they are going to go in to vaccinate every animal. One of the first species to get vaccinated is called the binturong and zoo officials say they are monitoring each animal closely after vaccination.

Dr. Cynthia Stringfield is ZooTampa’s animal health expert and says “We’re learning more every day because more studies are being done and more cases are happening, which people have heard about in other zoos.”

Dr. Stringfield ays as of Thursday, the zoo started vaccinated animals most susceptible to COVID-19, at the top of the list are orangutans, lemurs, binturong, tigers, and skunks.

An Oakland Zoo also vaccinated some animals, National Geographic reported the story:

Kern the brown bear got his COVID-19 vaccine on July 21. Then he ate whipped cream straight from the can.

Along with their vaccines, the tigers got their favorite meat—beef tenderloin—on shish kebab skewers, and a spritz of goat milk in their mouths. The siamangs—big black-furred gibbons—each got a large marshmallow. The baboons: gummy fruit snacks and a (peeled) hard-boiled egg.

At the Oakland Zoo, in California, 48 animals—including hyenas, chimpanzees, and mountain lions—have received at least one dose of an experimental COVID-19 vaccine made exclusively for animals. Half are already fully vaccinated.
