A small dog caused a very large ruckus on one USAirways flight which took off from Newark Monday morning, bound for Phoenix, Ariz.
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, one passenger’s tiny dog managed to get loose and bit two people before the plane could make an emergency landing at Pittsburgh International Airport. The dog was on board flight 522 which carried 122 passengers and bit a flight attendant and one other passenger.
USAirways later said the passenger with the dog was supposed to keep it in its cage under her seat, but she took it out and the animal ran loose. Although the dog is small and the injuries were minor, the Post-Gazette reports, the captain felt it was best to divert the plane.
