According to a tweet by the TSA Great Lakes Division, the dog was accidentally left in the backpack during the scan.
A dog was accidentally sent through the X-ray @MSN_Airport this week. When traveling with any animal, notify your airline & know their rules. At the checkpoint, remove your pet from the bag and send all items, including the empty carrier, to be screened in the machine.
