Ebola update: Campaigners worldwide lose fight to save Ebola nurse's dog Excalibur
09 October 2014 @ 18:19

PETITIONS signed by over 300,000 people in several countries failed to stop regional health authorities from putting Excalibur to sleep.

Nurse Teresa Romero Ramos, 44, is being treated for confirmed Ebola caught from the late missionary doctor Manuel García Viejo, and her husband, Javier Limón Romero, is in hospital under observation.

Both did what they could from their isolation wards to save their beloved pet, to no avail.

This included granting legal custody to TV vet and animal shelter boss Carlos Rodríguez, which would give him full decision-making power over Excalibur's fate.

But this was overruled by the court, and even Rodríguez was unable to prevent the dog being put to sleep.
