3 snow leopards with COVID-19 die at Nebraska Zoo

LINCOLN, Nebraska (AP) — Three snow leopards have died at the Lincoln Children’s Zoo in Nebraska from complications from COVID-19.

The zoo made the announcement in a Facebook post Friday, describing the deaths of the three leopards — named Ranney, Everest and Makalu — as “truly heartbreaking.”

The zoo began treating the leopards and two Sumatran tigers for the virus last month and said the tigers, Axl and Kumar, have made a full recovery.

The zoo remains open to the public and continues to take precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to humans and animals.

Zoos across the country, including the St. Louis Zoo and the Denver Zoo, have experienced COVID-19 outbreaks among their animals.
