Spanish health officials went into the home of a Spanish nurse who contracted Ebola after caring for two patients with the virus and destroyed the woman’s dog Excalibur today.
There have been major protests mounted at government offices and online by people around the world to save Excalibur.
The dog had been left in the apartment with an open terrace while his owner Teresa Romera Ramon, the nurse, and her husband Javier Limon went into isolation at the hospital.
More than 330,000 people signed a petition urging Excalibur be saved.
In the video taken below, Limon asked for the public to help save Excalibur.
But earlier today in Madrid, officials with the ministry of health in Spain, put out a statement saying Excalibur was sedated and then euthanized.
