They probably could since that's been the source of many viral outbreaks in the past.

It's a form of butterfly-effect

Ozzy Osbourne thought he made the news when he did it on stage once.

Hundreds of people could have predicted it. Species to species viral jump is well known to scientists, doctors, clinicians, etc...HIV jumped from monkeys to humans. Ebola jumped from fruit bats. Swine flu jumped from pigs. SARS jumped from bats to civets to humans. Avian influenza, aka bird flu, first jumped from birds to humans in the 1800s and has reappeared many times since. This is not new and it will happen many more times in the future.

Hollywood predicted this exact scenario...
