In the past few weeks, three dogs and a tortoise arrived with their travel companions at various airports across the country. However, at some point between check-in and boarding, their owners decided to leave the animals behind.
According to MSN, one dog was found tied to a pole outside the airport in Des Moines. The tortoise was discovered in a restroom at Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas. A puppy was abandoned by a departure gate at the same airport and another dog was surrendered to airline employees at Charlotte Douglas International.
