Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers said a woman’s seven-year-old chihuahua sneaked into her suitcase and triggered a luggage screening alert at New York’s LaGuardia Airport last week.
TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said the black, hard-sided suitcase was in a checked-baggage area on Tuesday when an unknown-contents alarm indicated an officer should inspect the case.
Those unknown contents proved to be a beige and tan chihuahua.
TSA said the owner had no idea her little dog had crawled in and curled up while she was packing for a flight to Los Angeles.
The woman’s husband came to the airport and took the dog home.
