Pangolins are natural reservoirs of Coronavirus anyway. 


“Most pangolins are nocturnal animals which use their well-developed sense of smell to find insects. “

Compare bats:

“Many bats are insectivores, and most of the rest are frugivores (fruit-eaters). A few species feed on animals other than insects; for example, the vampire bats feed on blood. Most bats are nocturnal”

Thought experiment:

Corona bat, of fruit or insect variety is eating some insects around fruit tree and poops. Pangolin walks in it when going to eat the same insects. We know fecal-oral is a transmission route. Now pangolin gets trafficked into wet market.
