Starred




I swear the dog looked at me and held on because he knew I was going to help one way or the other.


They know. Most people know they just don't want to accept the responsibility and stay with the ignorance is bliss mindset.

Wow don’t they heave to vet checked before they fly? I know our animals have to, they get their shots have a flea and tick baths make sure they have their id and that the microchip matches up, you take all the papers along with the animal’s details to the pet drop off point and then cry your eyes out missing them the whole time… Well that’s our routine.

This is so sad, she did the right thing.


love and harmony

no you are completely wrong. if a child or animal is being abused, you are supposed to report that. you sound like the perfect type for the leos that would partake in martial law.

Update: Reno air cargo worker Lynn Jones offered her job back after saving dog



Reno air cargo worker


Lynn Jones, who was fired from her job as an airport baggage handler in Reno last month after she reported animal abuse, has her job back if she wants it.

“Airport Terminal Services sincerely regrets the events that took place at Reno-Tahoe International Airport (last month) involving our employees and the reporting of suspected animal abuse,” said Sally Leible, president of the Saint Louis-based airport contractor.

“We’ve made an offer for Jones to be fully reinstated to her position with back pay. ... We are hopeful that this valued team member will rejoin us.”

I used to work for this company. Definitely not a good company to work for, AT ALL. All I will say is that if you've seen how these animals are loaded into the cargo bay, you will not be taking your animal on any flight unless it's safely up top with you.

If the dog was being abused, why was it returned to it's owner???

You sound like the type that likes to stick their nose into other peoples business and act superior and judgemental.

Everyone in the company has the job, as human beings, to have a basic level of respect for life. The company failed to do its job, and therefore the company CEO should resign if the situation is not righted. The company should no longer get any business until then.

If you don't want to do your job as a human being, then fine, but from my perspective you're fired as a human being and are demoted to monster. Nobody has to be a human being if they don't want to. But we should not give those people any of our business.

I agree with the firing.

She had no idea the situation of that dog. Perhaps it had been lost by its owner, on a cross country trip, found, and was now being returned to its rightful home? Perhaps it had some special health concern and was being flown to a specialist and her concern could have cost it its life. She was way out of line. Common sense would tell someone that a dog owner that is abusing its pets does not spend the money to fly them commercial.

Personally, I don't want nosy people loading my bags.


Way to throw in some hypothetical nonsense to mask your truly incompassionate and compliant self. Common sense is not a part of the equation you wish to impart on us. With that reasoning, rich people are the best tippers and are not cheap, dogs whom are emaciated, have sores and raw paws are treated well. It only costs about 75 bucks to fly a dog. People on ATS these days!

Those are hardly hypotheticals.

They are just as likely, or more likely than the dog being a victim of abuse by the person shipping the dog.

If a person using "common sense" sees an emaciated dog with sores, being flown somewhere, the first, and most likely, scenarios in my head would be the dog is being shipped for treatment, or the dog has been rescued and is being shipped to a new owner, or the dog has been used for something and needs to get back home. Abuse is not the first thing that pops into my mind in that scenario. Now, if the dog was tied out behind a trailer, then maybe abuse is the first thing that pops into my mind, but not in an airline luggage area.

Plus, if the dog is being flown somewhere, a person with "common sense" figures that time is an element. There is a reason they chose air travel. Perhaps I should hurry up and get this sick dog to its destination. Delaying the transport is counter-intuitive.

She made a mistake. She was rightfully fired, but due to political correctness and involvement by the media, she now has her job back, and she can now butt into more people's business.

The dog was listed in the article as being too thin with sores. Now come on there wasn't a vet near a big airport???? Use common sense.

Now, I keep my dog in trim (not thin / she eats like a horse) condition and walks 4 miles a day average.

"Too thin with sores", something stinks here like not caring for a dog properly.

Lucy (my companion who happens to be a dog) were to get even a tiny sore, I would be at the vets right away.

We are judging and not getting the full story.

Unless this "owner" of said dog lived in outer Mongolia, there are really good vets all over. I've even traveled to remote parts of Kentucky and over heard people talking about how good their vet was.

Sorry, the brave, kind hearted woman has three dogs of her own (see her picture), she knows a sick, abused dog and she was not being "nosy" she was showing concern.

Read my signature...............read it about three times.

The reason our entire planet is in such *rappy shape is because everyone walks by, eyes straight ahead and simply follows orders like a bunch of pod people.

That is what TPTB want, a bunch of robots.

John D Rockefeller : I don't want a nation of thinkers, I want a nation of workers.

The above quote says it all.

Right, just keep following orders.............that's the excuse the German soldiers used after 12 million people were systematically murdered.

I had a pitbull for 15 years. I got him at the age of 3 weeks, and I had him until his death last January. He was my best friend. He went everywhere with me, he slept next to my bed, he rode in the front seat of my jeep and truck, etc.

He often had sores on his feet from running. He loved to run with me, but the pavement wore his pads too thin. I put little leather booties on him, but sometimes he would kick them off. Sometimes he would step on something sharp and I wouldn't notice, and he was too tough to whimper about it.

I also had to board him in kennels from time to time, and he would often come home with his snout all scabbed over from trying to fight through the chainlink fence. He also had some surgery scars on his hips and back from having tumors removed as he aged.

So, if this nosy woman saw my dog, with a skinned snout, and sore feet, and scars on his back and hips, and he being a pitbull, she would probably assume he was a fighting dog. She would call authorities that would take months to investigate, and the vets would eventually confirm all his medical records, but in the meantime he would be in the same kennels that got him the scars in the first place. I might even have to hire an attorney. Worst-case scenario, they might euthanize him before even completing the investigation, because he was aggressive toward other dogs. He was great with people, but he hated other dogs. My lifelong companion would likely have been murdered by authorities if it had ever come across this woman's assembly line.

People should stop making assumptions and just do their dam jobs.

"Dozer," at age 14, on the floor with my 1 and 2 year olds at the time.

Are you honestly comparing Nazis to this???


The women didn't perform her job...she should of been fired. If the dog was so abused...why did they give it back to the owner?

And yes, she was sticking her nose into other peoples business...it isn't her job to inspect dogs to see if they are worthy of being owned by someone. I hear this crap all the time from "dog lovers"..."oh, you don't let your dog sleep in the house, on your bed, with a heated blanket....YOU MONSTER."


I read your signature...I fail to see the "evil" that was being commited here.

The dog was shipped back to the owner because the animal control officers didn't have jurisdiction in Texas where the owner lived. The Texas animal control said they would investigate.

I'm sure we will hear more about both the dog owner and the baggage handler in the future. Once these stories hit the news the reporters usually feel an obligation to follow up on the story.

Source

» A male pointer was shipped from Texas to Reno this fall and traveled under a veterinarian’s health certificate issued in Corpus Christi, Texas. That health certificate still was in force on Nov. 12, when the dog was to be shipped back to Texas.
» When Transportation Security Administration officers saw that the dog was emaciated, wounded and couldn’t stand up on its own, they and other workers at the airport were worried it would not survive the flight.
» The dog’s owner, a bird hunter from Texas, accompanied the animal to the Reno airport. That man, who has not been publicly identified because of a confidentiality provision in Nevada law, told concerned airport workers that the dog was in good health.
» Although an Airport Terminal Services baggage supervisor said the dog was to be loaded on the plane because its paperwork was in order, baggage handler Lynn Jones refused to do so and said she was fired over the incident. The company later offered her the job back with back pay.
» Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority police called Washoe County Regional Animal Services. The dog was taken to the animal shelter and nursed back to health. It was shipped back to Texas, apparently because the dog’s owner was there and Washoe County officials have no jurisdiction outside the county.
» Corpus Christi animal control officials said they did not learn of the case until this week but will attempt to locate the dog and its owner.

Well, you do have a really valid point there, I can't argue with that.

Good point.



Something to think about.

And the dog and babies of yours are adorable!

Dozer looked well fed, he looked loved...............cute family.

Thanks!


Here is the old dog, the new dog, the African Sulcata Tortoises, a Nurse shark (not mine, but a friends) and the kids.



I am actually an animal lover myself, I just don't like to jump to conclusions based on first impressions, and I think this particular woman was out of line. Maybe she was right to alert her supervisor, get a 2nd and 3rd opinion, give the dog a drink of water, but pulling it out and refusing to ship it was way out of line.

GetReadyAlready gave a nicer reply and made me realize we all sometimes jump to conclusions without having all the data.




oh, you don't let your dog sleep in the house, on your bed, with a heated blanket....YOU MONSTER."


FYI: Lucy doesn't sleep in bed with us as she is use to being a prison puppy and begs for her crate to be opened up at 9PM. She has no conception that some dogs are allowed to sleep on a bed or couch as she was raised from a puppy to 6 years of age in a kennel as a breeder bitch.

On a automatic feeding and watering system with no human contact.

Being hugged, kissed, loved still scares her at times because she has seen the dark side of humanity.

Dog lover.......................you bet, I am also a sucker for kids, cats, birds, bunnies and squirrels.

Just don't leave a baby or companion animal on my doorstep


I can't afford another mouth to feed.

If you're truly worried about people being in your business, write a letter to the T.S.A and voice your complaints there. How awful of a world this would be if everyone had your line of thinking. This was a dog... (man's best friend) and there are plenty of other reasons beside yours why the matter should have been investigated further.
