Important Safety Notice: Dogs and Escalators/Moving Walkways Don’t Mix

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

This was received from a reader who works at an airport:
Please help me get the word out on a very serious threat to dogs traveling in airports. I am a safety manager at a major airport, and we frequently have dogs seriously injured when their owners try to walk them on escalators or moving walkways. The combs at the ends of the walkways and escalators will catch a dog’s feet and trap them. It is a very nasty injury, and technicians have to take the escalator/walkway apart to free their feet.

Please help make pet owners aware not to take dogs or any other animals onto escalators or walkways!

Thank you for caring.
