(Newser) – Two of John Travolta's dogs have been killed in a freak accident at a Maine airport. After a jet carrying members of the Travolta family landed at Bangor International Airport last week, "two small dogs were taken for a walk by someone who is not a family member," city officials said in an email sent to the Bangor Daily News. "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." It's unclear whether the worker involved will face charges.
