Sads time. John Travolta’s two dogs were killed last Thursday after they were both struck by a truck on the tarmac at Bangor International Airport in Maine. After the family landed, one of their assistants took the dogs for a walk and an airport truck accidentally hit them. I know what you’re thinking. Now is not the time to make a joke about John’s wigs.
The Bangor Daily News got a hold of an e-mail that was sent to the Bangor City Manager regarding the accident:
“At approximately 1 a.m. on Thursday, May 13, 2010, an airplane carrying members of the John Travolta family landed at BIA. While there, two small dogs were taken for a walk by someone who is not a family member. An airport service pickup truck was approaching the airplane to service the airplane and did not see the dogs. Unfortunately, the dogs were struck and killed. The airport is investigating the accident. Out of respect for the family’s privacy the city will make no further comment.”
A rep for the Travolta family wasn’t aware of the accident, but said he would look into it.
Awful, and kind of weird. Who was walking the dogs and were they on a leash? Those poor dogs were probably just looking for a good place to relieve their bladders. Well, they’re in heaven now where they can piss wherever they want. Rest in peace, Travolta dogs.
