Dog escapes from kennel, runs across LA runways

Associated Press Updated: July 2, 2014 at 3:13 pm

LOS ANGELES - Officials say a dog chewed its way out of a cargo kennel at Los Angeles International Airport, ran across two runways and briefly delayed two flights before it was captured.

Airport spokeswoman Nancy Castles tells the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/1iXleeo) the large brown boxer made its escape while it was being loaded on a flight to Paris.

Castles says the dog bolted across two north runways before being captured by airport personnel in a ditch near LAX's north perimeter fence.

The incident briefly delayed an arriving flight and a departing flight.

Castles says the dog's owner had left on a flight earlier Tuesday and was probably unaware that his pet had escaped.
