According to an article in the Reno Gazette-Journal, the owner of the hunting dog that Lynn Jones would not allow on an airplane because it looked sick will not face any charges. Although the veterinarian who treated the pointer said that the dog was not sick but had wounds consistent with a rough week of hunting, she also noted that airport workers were right to be concerned.

Once the dog was returned to its owner in Corpus Christi, Texas, after four days of treatment, local animal control officers checked on it and found nothing to be concerned about. Neither the dog nor its owner have been identified because of privacy laws. The comments on RGJ.com involve a raging debate between those who think Jones overreacted and those who believe she did the right thing. What do you think?
