Many travelers enjoy taking their pet on vacation with them, but one dog decided that it would make the trip from Hong Kong to Japan without informing its owner.
According to EJIInsight.com, a Schnauzer dog snuck into its owner’s bag before the family departed for a trip to Japan. When the plane landed at New Chitose Airport in Hokkaido on Dec. 28, the owner received a message from his mother-in-law that the dog was missing.
After the owner picked up the family’s checked baggage, they found that the dog was inside one of their suitcases alive and well. The pet had made it through security and a seven hour trip unharmed and undiscovered.
The owner of the dog told authorities that he didn’t see the dog get into his luggage before he zipped it up and packed it away, but officials are now more concerned about how the animal could have gotten through all the layers of airport security.
After reporting the ordeal to the airport, a tour guide recommended the owner ship the dog back to Hong Kong. Japan’s Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department spokesperson notified the proper government officials and sent the pet home on Dec. 30.
