Can I get ebola from dogs who eat ebola victims?

Dogs are eating up dead bodies of ebola victims in Liberia. Are these dogs contagious?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

Dogs who came in contact with infected bodies could, at least in theory, pass on ebola via a bite or other kind of contact. 

Do you plan on visiting Liberia? It's advisable to avoid the countries that are currently dealing with this crisis.
