How do animals get the flu in the wild and where does the bacteria originate?

The virus is just another life form that happens to live in that population of animals. There are plenty.

The problem with diseases that originate in other animals is that when a different type of host takes it, they’re out of equilibrium. It’s not actually in the viruses best interest to kill the host, because then it dies too.

I think it’s important to note that bacteria are different from viruses. It’s like the difference between honey bees and wasps. Bacteria are just out to live their life and have mainly symbiotic relationships. Viruses just wanna fuck, fuck you up, and be dead inside.

Influenza isn’t a bacteria. They get it from other birds, who got it from other birds. Sometimes they can hop species, particularly among pigs, chickens, and humans.
