The 4-year-old Malayan tiger named Nadia, and six other tigers and lions that have also fallen ill, are believed to have been infected by a zoo employee who wasn't yet showing symptoms, the zoo said. “We tested the cat out of an abundance of caution" and aim to "contribute to the world’s continuing understanding of this novel coronavirus,” said Dr. Paul Calle, the zoo's chief veterinarian.

This is the heartbreaking moment newborn puppies were discovered buried under the ground after strangers heard their faint cries. The poor little dogs were unearthed by Martin Reyes and his friend at a vacant lot inside their subdivision in Bulacan, the Philippines, on December 13. He said they were travelling home when they heard puppies crying and began scraping at the earth with their hands to free them. Martin said: "We checked the entire lot but it was empty, so we followed the sounds. It was coming from the ground." They found three newborn puppies buried under the ground with their dead mother. The one who was buried deeper than the two was already dead when they dug him out of the manmade grave. They took the other two home, but one of them died a few days later because it was sick with Parvovirus. The white puppy is the only one that is alive. She is staying with Martin. He said: "I will name her Paris. I don't want to get too attached to her now so I am not yet giving her a name." Martin said it might because the owner knew the puppies' mother was sick, the dogs were abandoned. The incident was reported to the local authorities.
A sea turtle that was blown off course by choppy seas during a typhoon was rescued after being washed up on a beach. The marine creature was found among the wreckage in the recently typhoon-ravaged town of Ballesteros in Cagayan, the Philippines on December 8. Cagayan was one of the badly-hit provinces by typhoon Kammuri last week, the strongest typhoon that entered the country this year and killed at least 17 people. Resident Anthony Alvarez said his neighbours found the lone turtle near the boat and immediately reported to the authorities. Anthony said: "The turtle didn't look hurt, but we still called on the authorities for proper handling." An enclosure was made for the sea turtle where it stayed for one day before it was released back into the ocean on Monday (December 12). The Department of Environment and Natural Resources checked the health of the sea turtle and facilitated the release.
