Demand Justice for Baggage Handler Who Reported Animal Abuse!

Background | From Change

Lynn Jones, a baggage handler at Reno-Tahoe Airport for the past five years was terminated last month after she refused to load an abused, bleeding, malnourished dog into a cargo hold, fearing it would die in transport. Jones, reported the abused animal to her supervisor who supposedly told her “the dog’s condition isn’t your concern.”

When Jones reported the abuse to Washoe County Regional Animal Services and the dog was seized for examination, treatment and documentation, Lynn Jones didn’t get a thank you – she got fired.

The dog in question was kept and treated for weeks by WCRAS and the case has apparently been forwarded to the District Attorney, but Lynn Jones still has no job.

According to www.ilovedogs.com “ATS posted a message on its website, saying the company is taking this matter “extremely seriously and commends this employee’s situational awareness and her desire to raise the concern on behalf of the canine involved and relieved to hear that the canine will fully recover.” It stated the company is currently “reviewing the actions of all employees involved to determine if the appropriate action was taken.”

Airport Terminal Services has a legal and ethical obligation to report cases of animal abuse. Lynn Jones is a hero, and deserves to not only have her position back, but to be issued a public apology and be given her full wages for the time period that she was terminated for doing the RIGHT THING

ATS can be contacted by going to http://www.atsstl.com/contact.asp

DEMAND justice for local hero, Lynn Jones.

    She was offered her job back, But according to animal connection:
    Animal welfare workers picked up the animal. It recovered and was eventually returned to its owner.
    This is outrageous, the “owner” should have been charged with animal cruelty.
