Some deer in Oklahoma have been turning up with the coronavirus.
Several deer from the state recently tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies, according to state wildlife officials.
A story in The Oklahoman says that biologists aren’t sure how the deer got the virus but it does follow a trend in other states.
The story quotes OSU Extension wildlife specialist Dwayne Elsmore who says there is a very low likelihood of catching the virus from a deer.
Even so, the story suggests, if hunters are field dressing deer they should not touch their faces, wear gloves and throw the gloves away when they are done.
