Well this dog really wanted to get out.
During a flight from St. Petersburg, a dog flying in the cargo hold of a Boeing 737 managed to get out of his crate and open the luggage hatch.
RT reports that the pooch was able to tear “the inner lining of the luggage compartment and somehow provoked the opening of its front half-door” while the flight was at an altitude of 13,000 feet.
Once the door was opened, the alarm went off and the plane made an emergency landing in Moscow. Luckily the plane landed before the dog was completely able to open the luggage hatch. “There was a gap of several dozen centimeters, but the dog was unable to get into it and stayed alive,” a source at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport confirmed.
Just what kind of dog is tenacious enough to try and chew his way through a plane? Unfortunately, that information has not been released. But he’s described as “small” but likely over 17 pounds, which is the weight limit in the EU for pets traveling in the cabin.
