An Ohio woman whose dog escaped while waiting for an Air Canada flight to his new home in British Columbia this week is stunned that the dog was let out of its crate by Air Canada staff against her wishes and fears it might be dead.
Jutta Kulic flew from her home in Ohio to California earlier this week to attend a dog show and to put Larry, a two-year-old Italian greyhound, on a plane bound for his new home in Campbell River, B.C.
"We really felt that the safest way to do it would be the Air Canada flight," she said. "I left specific instructions that the kennel never be opened ... There was no reason for them to open that kennel."
