Iowa Capital Dispatch: Des Moines’ famed bonobos soon will get free COVID-19 vaccinations. Zoetis, a New Jersey-based global animal health company, is donating more than 11,000 doses of the experimental vaccine to zoos and sanctuaries around the United States. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is approving the uses on a case-by-case basis. Jared Taglialatela, president and director of the Ape Initiative (formerly Great Ape Trust) said the vaccinations should begin in coming weeks. Bonobos are susceptible to respiratory diseases.
