A story broke back in December regarding a baggage handler who lost her job for trying to help a dog that showed signs of neglect. She refused to load the dog, fearing that being on the plane would kill it due to its condition.  She was fired after the incident, and the dog was fortunately helped by a rescue group that restored it to health.

It seems hard to imagine that an employer would punish an employee in this way for trying to do the right thing. Even though people aren’t generally required to report suspected animal abuse or neglect by law, most would generally agree that the wrong thing to do in such a situation is nothing. Animals, after all, can’t speak up and tell someone that something’s not right.

There are no easy answers to a lot of things that go wrong with the treatment of animals. While I understand legitimate concerns about solving everything by increased legislation, we do need to stop animals from falling through the cracks simply because there isn’t a law that addresses their situation.

One possible solution I think might be helpful is for transportation-related companies to have policies about handling such situations. Just because an animal has current shots doesn’t mean that it’s okay health-wise. Having animal welfare groups on standby who can work with owners willing to make changes can also be of value.
