  1. If they’d stop fucking poaching and eating pangolins and let them live peacefully, this shit wouldn’t have happened.

  2. Remember in the last few years all those campaigns to save the Pangolins? All those YouTube videos of 3D printed pangolin toys?

    Yeah, Pangolins about to be hunted to extinction.

  3. Pretty sure the Pangolins didn’t spread it to humans. They ate the Pangolins. Humans spread the contravirus to humans by eating the poor Pangolins.

    Now if a Pangolin attacked someone and spread it, I would say that would mean Pangolins were spreading it.

  4. Fuck you! Leave the pangolins out of this!

  5. Good, hope it helps these poor animals.

  6. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/feb/07/pangolins-might-have-spread-coronavirus-to-humans) reduced by 89%. (I’m a bot)

    > Chinese researchers investigating the animal origin of the coronavirus outbreak in China have said that the endangered pangolin may be the "Missing link" between bats and humans.

    > Many animals are capable of transmitting viruses to other species, and nearly all strains of coronavirus contagious to humans originated in wildlife.

    > For Fontanet, coronavirus is just the latest example of the potentially disastrous consequence of humans consuming virus-carrying wild animals.

  7. People don’t wipe out any species that happens to cause a disease or virus….there wouldn’t be many species left on the planet if there was a cull on every animal that carried something that could make people sick

  8. Let’s see how many different endangered species they can blame before they arrive at a scapegoat.

  9. Maybe it will help stop the poaching if they fear contagion.

  10. The ‘might’ in the headline means this is pointless speculation and not actual news.

  11. Weird way to spell biological weapons lab.
