Reints Bok believes Escot roamed around that morning, ate some poisoned meat, then returned to the grocery store and collapsed.
Escot's owner had rubbed olive oil all over the dog's body, hoping that would help. "In the Galapagos, they believe oil's a remedy for that kind of toxin, but it doesn't work," Reints Bok said.
What the oil did do was make it nearly impossible for Reints Bok to get a catheter into Escot so she could start administering fluids. "In the end, I used duct tape to tape the IV catheter," she said.
