Tragic news from Northern California today. Eva, the brave dog that fended off a mountain lion attack and saved her owner and was badly injured, has died. Here’s more from the Sacramento Bee’s story:
In a brief tearful interview by phone, Eva’s owner, Erin Wilson, said Eva, a 2½-year-old Belgian Malinois, started getting wobbly and having seizures over the weekend at their home in Trinity County.
Wilson was told Eva needed special emergency care after rushing her to a Redding veterinarian.
Wilson took her to the animal hospital at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. There, Eva’s condition deteriorated to the point her veterinarians attempted to put her on a ventilator Wednesday morning.
“She just never woke up,” Wilson told The Sacramento Bee as she started to sob. “She never woke up.”
A Go Fund Me page had raised over $35,000 to help cover Eva’s vet expenses. And here are some social media tributes to this brave dog from today:
