Air Canada Loses Woman’s Dog, Spokesman Dismisses Inquiries In Accidental Email
SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Air Canada admits it lost a customer’s precious cargo when one of its workers let a dog out of its crate, and it escaped.
Jutta Kulic is visiting Sacramento for a dog show, but her mind is back in San Francisco. That’s where the search for her dog that never made it to his final destination is now in its fifth day.
This week, on her way to a dog show in Sacramento from their home in Ohio, Kulic booked a flight from San Francisco on Air Canada to Larry’s new home.
She zip-tied Larry’s crate several times before leaving him with the airline.
“And I very clearly instructed them never ever to open the door and let the dog out of that crate, unless he’s in a completely enclosed room,” Kulic said.
That flight ended up being cancelled and rescheduled for later that night.
Then came another call from Air Canada.
“They called me at about 6:30, and told me one of their employees had decided to walk the dog,” Kulic said.
Larry had run away, and Air Canada workers searching for the white and brown dog couldn’t find him.
“We’re sorry the animal was lost, because someone was simply stupid,” Kulic said.
But we wanted answers about what went wrong—what procedures might not have been followed, and what they’re doing to make sure this doesn’t happen to anyone else’s pet.
Instead of answers, we got this email:
“I think I would just ignore, it is local news doing a story on a lost dog. Their entire government is shut down and about to default and this is how the US media spends its time.”
Wow...Guess there will be an open PR job at AC for me to apply for in the near future

1. I confess that is something I might have done..
try to take the poor dog for a walk during the delay.
I bet that guy feels terrible because he's probably
a softhearted person and dog lover.
Hopefully doggie will show up and be safe & sound.
