Escaped airport puppy captured using chicken as bait

VICTORIA, British Columbia, Nov. 15 (UPI) -- An animal rescue group said a puppy that escaped at Canada's Victoria International Airport was captured the next day in a live trap.

Michael Cox of MexPup, a rescue group that brings homeless dogs to Canada from Mexico, said 9-month-old Zander made a break for freedom Saturday while workers at the airport were attempting to put him into a harness, MetroNews Canada reported Friday.

"We tried to get him into a harness in the airport, and he ended up bolting outside the terminal doors," Cox said. "On the plus side, because he's a puppy, he stayed close to the airport."

Cox said Zander turned up Sunday in a live trap baited with rotisserie chicken.

"Everyone loves roast chicken," Cox quipped.

Zander is now "safe and sound" and is doing well with a foster family, Cox said.
