Dog Rescued from Swamp After Escaping Newark Airport

A dog had to be rescued from a New Jersey swamp this week after escaping from Newark Liberty International Airport

The pooch in question—a collie known as Dart—managed to get away from United Airlines' pet transport service. The aptly named Dart, well, darted into traffic and crossed several parking lots before finally getting mired in the mud of a swamp.

Airport police used a rowboat and a snare to rescue the dog, who was not injured during his 45-minute adventure—in fact, he even made his flight, which was headed to Asia.
