John Travolta's Dogs Killed in Accident at Bangor, Maine, Airport - ABC News the important thing is not WHOSE dogs - its that they were on the airport tarmac after 1-AM being walked by someone, and were hit + killed by an airport service-truck. i would bet $20 those dogs were each on a %$#@*&! extendable lead... :incazzato: all the pickup-driver would have seen at that hour of the night, on a lane-less roadway / parking-lot, would be a human-being... 2 small dogs on a dark string are invisible! :mad5: why the idiot was walking the dogs there is one Q - but if as i suspect, the dogs were 20-ft from her / him, then the dog-walker is at least 70% responsible for the deaths of the animals in her / his care, IMO. PLEASE do not take chances after dark - Preferably leave the bloody Flexi at home, or if U DO use one, ***lock it to a 6-ft length.*** the dog may have less space to run around, but they are also a lot less likely to pull that stoopid NON-ergonomic plastic handle out of Ur hand, and go racing off into the dark. poor dogs... and poor family. what a shame.
