Nearly 10,000 minks die after Covid-19 outbreak at Utah fur farms
"Like humans with Covid-19, the most common symptom for infected minks has been respiratory distress, he said.
“Minks show open mouth breathing, discharge from their eyes and nose, and are not sick for several days before they pass away,” Taylor said. “They typically die within the next day.”
Taylor added that the virus has predominantly targeted older minks, “wiping out 50 percent of the breeding colonies,” while leaving the younger ones unscathed."
