New York, USA
Veterinarians in New York euthanized Jack, the cat who gained worldwide attention and more than 23,000 Facebook fans after being lost for two months, and then found, at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Jack had extensive wounds on the back of his body, and the wounds were unable to heal because his skin had deteriorated due to the malnutrition that occurred while he was lost.
Jack first got loose in the American Airlines baggage center at JFK on Aug. 25, after his owner, Karen Pascoe, checked him and another cat in to American Airlines as cargo. As American Airlines explained in an incident report filed with the Department of Transportation, while the kennels were waiting to be loaded on the aircraft, "the kennel positioned on the top fell to the ground. The impact of the fall caused the kennel to separate and the cat escaped."
