Woman tries to board plane after dumping cat

Norwegian staff alert police following suspicious behaviour
A woman who was told she could not board a flight from Oslo to London with her cat then left it in a quiet part of the airport and tried to board without it.
The woman, who was in her 30s, was told at Norwegian’s check-in desk at Gardermoen Airport that she could not put her cat on the flight without giving advance notice. Shortly afterwards she returned without the cat and tried to check in. The employees became suspicious and searched for the animal, finding it in a cage. They then alerted police.
When police stopped the woman, she said she had given the cat to a friend who had come to pick it up. But the police appear to have disproved her story. The cat has been passed to Animal Protection Norway.
