Dog lover Lynn Jones was fired from her job for trying to save the life of an abused dog. As an employee of Airport Terminal Services in Reno, Nevada, Ms. Jones refused to board the dog into the cargo hold of an airplane, which flight would have almost certainly caused the death of the sick and abused dog. After a prolonged emotional discussion with her boss, Ms. Jones finally succeeded in the argument – airport police called animal welfare and the dog was taken into their custody.
After this story first went public, Ms. Jones was offered her job back. But this saga still begs the question – when is it OK to stand up for the lives of animals? Or even something that you perceive is illegal?
