Dog virus is deadly to tigers

Dr Abe V Rotor
Common virus that causes distemper in dogs and other canines is infecting tigers and other big cats. Tigers, among other game animals, are endangered by poaching and shrinking of natural habitats, now exacerbated by this newly discovered disorder. While vaccination is the practical approach in curtailing the spread of the virus, the procedure is extremely difficult to apply under wildlife condition. (Acknowledgement: PDI Jan 14, 2014)
