CDC Director says he was surprised by euthanization of Spanish Ebola patient's dog

Fusion’s Jorge Ramos spoke with the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Tom Frieden, about the worldwide response to the Ebola outbreak.

Ramos also asked Dr. Frieden what he thought about the decision to euthanize the dog of a Spanish nurse who was diagnosed with Ebola.

“While animals can be infected with Ebola, I was surprised to see that decision and I think there are a variety of other options that might have been considered,” Frieden said.

Animal activists worldwide have been protesting the decision by Spanish authorities to put down the dog, especially since he was not diagnosed with Ebola.
