In the city of Pittsburgh, law enforcement officers have announced that they will not cite the owner of a dog that allegedly bit two people while aboard a U.S. Airways flight. After the dog bites occurred, there was a forced emergency landing.
Officers say that an 89-year-old woman from New Jersey had been traveling with her dog, Mandy, from New Jersey to Arizona on Monday. During the flight, the dog became agitated. When a passenger tried to calm the dog, it bit the passenger and then broke out of its cage. The 12 lb. animal then proceeded to bite a flight attendant.
122 passengers and five crew members were on the flight and the bites were not severe. However, the pilot decided to land the plane as a precaution. The flight then resumed without the woman and her dog hours later.
