Airport worker fired after refusing to load dog

RENO, Nev. (AP) - A Nevada woman says she was fired as a baggage
handler at Reno-Tahoe International Airport last month after she
refused to load an emaciated hunting dog on a plane.
Lynn Jones says in an interview on Monday that the dog was in
such bad shape it made her cry.
Jones says it had sores all over and raw paws. But she says her
supervisor told her to load the dog bound for Corpus Christi,
Texas, because its paperwork was in order and its condition wasn't
her concern.
Jones says Monday was the first day her ex-employer had
contacted her since the incident. The St. Louis-based Airport
Terminal Services said in a statement it takes the matter extremely
seriously and is conducting an internal investigation.
