A human infected with the disease may experience flu-like symptoms: fever, sweats, joint pain, weakness and headaches, according to the health department.

Humans infected with the disease, according to The Mayo Clinic, can expect to "take antibiotics for at least six weeks".

"They spent their lives in these little tiny boxes breeding over and over and over, and to finally get out and get some freedom and have to die would be so tragic and very bad", Heinz said. "Please pray for our sweet babies that were finally getting the chance to have a happy life".
