This is the man who tried to put his cat through an airport security X-ray machine. You know how you have to put certain things in a tray and place the tray on a conveyor belt that passes through the X-ray machine. Well, he did it to his cat….until the airport security and passengers people screamed and stopped him! Everyone (except him) freaked out. He is still laughing….see picture below.
Although animals should never go through X-ray machines at airports, they would not cause harm, apparently, because of the low dosage. Although all X-rays are potentially dangerous.
The interesting aspect of this cat story is that the uproar from security staff and passengers was immense, more than for dangerous security issues. This is good isn’t it? It indicates a deep concern for animal welfare. Or is it something else?
The cat was stored in a regular bag and not a cat carrier. When the time came to put his bits and pieces such as laptop computer on the tray he put his cat on it with the other stuff. Extraordinary. You’d never do that in a million years. There is no reason for it. There is no reason to X-ray your cat at airport security. Come on sir! That was stupid. And you were not to know that it would not hurt your cat. Is this attempted animal cruelty? No I don’t think so but it is pretty close to a crime.
