We’ve had a lot of stories about cats and dogs who’ve been lost in airports, escaping their carriers and fleeing, panicked, into crowded terminals. It rarely ends well. Some animals are never seen again; some don’t make it out alive. In most cases, after a pet escapes, he seems to vanish, and there’s a long period of uncertainty as personnel try to figure out where the animal went.
This time, however, everybody knew exactly where the dog went — and it was a very bad place, indeed. On Tuesday at LAX, a Boxer was in the process of being loaded onto a flight to Paris when he chewed his way out of his kennel and ran. He saw a wide-open area and headed for it.
Yep, the runways.
