    We’re still learning about COVID-19. We know it came from an animal. But does that mean they also need the jab?

    Our furry friends can become carriers of the disease – and in rare instances turn into a risk for owners.

    Safari parks, zoos and shelters have started innoculating apes, lions and wolves, to protect us and the animals. The experimental vaccines are specifically made for them.

    Conservationists say we brought this on ourselves, by our disrespect of nature, forcing animals ever closer to humans.
