A cheetah at a Santa Rosa wildlife preserve has tested positive for the H1N1 virus, marking what wildlife officials believe is the first reported case of the virus in a zoological setting in the United States.


Is this the first case of h1n1 jumping species? How is it possible that a cheetah catches H1N1 in a wildlife preserve? Any speculation on how a cheetah gets close enough to humans to be able to contract this virus? I am just scratching my head here.

Sounds to me like the Pharms want an excuse for mass vaccination of our cattle. Either to make another few Billion $'s or to kill them off and starve us. Perhaps even for both reasons

It is not the first case of it jumping species. A lady in utah had a cat that tested positive for h1n1. about 1week ago or so.

as far as how? well how many people touch food prepared for the animal. a sneeze reaches a long way. someone sick, throwing popcorn, or who knows what into the cage.

This jumped from Pigs, mutated and combined with the bird flu to become transmittable to humans? Now this virus has jumped to cats? THIS ISNT HOW VIRUSES WORK!

Another good question is why are they testing cheetas for H1N1 anway?
And another good one, how often do these tests give false positives?

Have either of these felines died?
If not, how about testing them to see how they fight it off?
