When Mary Martell left for St. Johns Airport, she didnâ€™t know her cat had jumped into her suitcase. How did a live animal in a suitcase make it through airport security?
Martell said her bag was scanned at the airport, but she was not stopped.
"They had asked me, when they put â€¦ the luggage through the X-ray, whether I had a turkey," Martell said.
"[Security] kept going back and forth with [the suitcase]," Martell said. "I was adamant. 'Look, I have no turkey.'"
The cat was discovered after a two-hour flight to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, when Martell opened her suitcase in her hotel room. The Canadian Air Transport Security Authority is investigating the incident. Link -via Metafilter
