Six Bonobos Die in Sanctuary

Six bonobos, a species of chimpanzee, have died from a flu epidemic in a month at the Lola Ya Bonobo in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Ten more have contracted the flu.

These are apes in a rehab center, and apparently the flu (we’ll assume for the moment that the diagnosis is accurate, but keep in mind that the term “flu” has different meanings in different parts of the world) hits hard and the animal dies in a few days after showing symptoms.
