This was painful to watch and hear. A poor little dog crying, it’s tiny paw caught in the moving walkway at Houston’s Bush International Airport in Texas. Not what you want to witness on Christmas Day, or any day.
Its yelping echoed through the airport terminal. Its owner screamed.
People immediately ran from all directions to turn the walkway off and help remove the trapped paw. The dog crying out in pain the entire time.
The owner, crumpled on the walkway, sobbing and clutching her wounded dog, seemed to be in shock. The dog whimpered whenever she moved the animal to assess the damage to its paw.
The discussion was centred around whether to catch her flight or leave the airport to seek help for the dog.
She elected to find the nearest veterinarian.
Why she was walking the dog on the moving walkway is a mystery. Those things are bloody dangerous. I feel a wobbly getting on and off.
The dog should have been in its carrying case. Learn from this woman’s mistake. Don’t kill your dog at the airport.
