Animal rights activists gathered in Madrid today to protest the local government's plans to euthanize a dog that had contact with a nurse's aid who is infected with Ebola.
Teresa Romero contracted Ebola after treating a Spanish missionary who died late last month. She's in the hospital, but the story of her dog, Excalibur, is making international headlines.
Animal rights activists have started a Change.org petition, and Romero's husband is pleading for the dog to be kept alive.
