WestJet loses dog after putting it on wrong flight
A search is under way for a dog that wound up in Hamilton after apparently being placed aboard a wrong Westjet flight.
Tanya Simon, the mother of the woman who owns the Golden Labradoodle, said on Facebook that ``Cooper'' was supposed to be flown from Halifax to Deer Lake, NL on Wednesday to stay with family members while her daughter and roommate headed to Jamaica for her wedding.
But ``Cooper'' was somehow placed on a flight to Hamilton
A WestJet spokeswoman says the dog got off his leash in Hamilton after he was taken out of the kennel for a walk.
WestJet said it as doing everything possible to find the dog, including ground searches, putting up posters, and following tips from the Hamilton airport security phone line.
