An Australian veterinarian has been quarantined after euthanizing a horse dying of the Hendra virus, a lethal bat-borne disease. The veterinarian is one of seven people who must wait six weeks for results before they'll know whether they contracted the virus through exposure to the animal. "He's concerned but calm," said the man's employer, Cooroora Veterinary Clinic owner Ben Poole. "He took excellent precautions prior to examining the horse so he minimized his potential exposure."
