(Editor: In a previous article on this site, we examined the response of deer who had tested positive for Covid: https://wordpress.com/post/dougzone22.ca/538)
Bornish, ON – Scientists stationed in the oddly named town have posted a paper at bioRxiv, an online archive and distribution service for unpublished preprints in life sciences, that suggests deer definitely have Covid-19, and may be giving it right back to humans.
“I have to say,” admitted field-researcher Finlay Maguire, “I never expected to find myself on Bornish, Ontario, nor did I know it existed.”
What about Maguire’s findings are news worthy?
Maguire, obviously unaware of layman’s terms, spewed, “We recently found highly divergent SARS-CoV-2 genomes from deer with potential deer-to-human transmission via wildlife surveillance.”
In regular speak, deer have a unique version of Covid, and some humans have been found to have it too. Deer caught Covid-19 from humans, and are giving it right back!
When asked about social distancing, our renowned spokes-ungulate, Bambi, snickered.
“Wow, I almost scat myself there!” Bambi declared openly. “This is rutting season, and a Deer has to make a Buck, if you catch my drift!”
When told of social media ads about keeping one’s distance to prevent the spread of disease, Bambi raised a hoof, and ranted, “Does it look like I can navigate my way through a mobile device with these clodhoppers? Nor can I manage a mask, you idiot!”
Meanwhile, the citizenry of Bracebridge Ontario have petitioned the town council to ban Santa Claus, and his herd from his summer home (Santa’s Village) within their town’s limits.
