Rhodesian Ridgeback Escapes Kennel

A 14 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback named Byrdie escaped from her kennel while being loaded on a Delta Airlines flight at La Guardia International Airport. The dog's owner was taken off the plane and was able to quickly get Byrdie to come to her.

This is another great reminder of how important it is to secure the top and bottom half of your pet's kennel with zip ties, along with securing the kennel door with zip ties as well.

Additional details on this incident will be included in the June 2012 Pet Travel Report.
