A heartless Russian couple left their dog to freeze to death in a remote part of the Russia’s Koltsovo airport because they were told the dog didn’t have the necessary paperwork to fly to Germany. Oksana and Alexander Urusov walked outside of the terminal and abandoned their loyal dog Tori in the freezing cold; leaving her trapped in a carry-on bag as they turned around to board their flight.Siberian Times2

According to the Siberian Times, instead of arranging someone to pick up their dog, Tori was left shivering in the -30 below weather. She was found dead three days later in an unused area of the airport. The couple didn’t report their dog missing until three days after they arrived in Hamburg claiming their children were distraught over the welfare of their loyal dog. In an online plea Oksana posted:

“We are looking for our little dog, she is white with a flick of ginger. Our children can’t stop crying. Please can you help? We’re ready to pay a fine. We had to leave her at the airport … they didn’t take her on board at check-in when we were flying to Hamburg to see our children.”

Staff at the airport stated they would have been glad to help had the couple asked.

“Tori was left in an area where there are usually no people. If she was to be left closer to or inside the terminal, the dog would have been rescued.”

Airline personnel told the couple to leave Tori with a friend or reschedule their flight. Mr. Urusov then left the counter with Tori on a leash and returned a short time later without the dog, telling the staff he had left her with a friend. Animal protection personnel had hoped to find the dog still alive after the couple revealed where the poor pooch had been left to freeze. Through closed circuit cameras, the staff were finally able to located the hidden spot where she died in her carry-on bag as temperatures plunged between minus 10C and minus 30C.

Dmitry Tyukhtin, spokesperson for Koltsovo airport in Yekaterinburg, said: “We heard about the story from journalists and couldn’t believe a human could do that to a dog.”

A petition demanding the couple be brought to justice has been signed by more than 7,000 area residents. Rest in peace Tori. We are so sorry you were betrayed by the very humans you loved.

    How heartless can you truly be? Today I read about a man in Cleveland that set his dog on fire, alive. I think to have dogs, cats, rabbits, fish, any animal, people need to be screened first, none of this is excusable and these people, along with anyone who abuses any

    Absolutely prosecute these people. Nothing, not even a flight, should take precedence over taking care of your pet. These are living and loving animals!!!

      I think that sorry son of a bitch should be left naked in the arctic in a cage. A bastard like this does not deserve to live. Think about it which would you rather have alive and walking on this earth, that puppy or that sorry

    This disgusting couple should be arrested shoved in cages with no food,water or coats & dumped in exactly the same place in the airport that poor little Tori was left until they are dead from the cold,no one would miss this evil pair of scumbags, RIP Tori

    This couple needs to be abandoned in Siberia during the coldest part of winter – without coats and without any way to get out. Let them die the same horrible death they caused their little dog. The children are crying for their dog – they will be scarred for life once they find out what their parents did to that dog. RIP, sweet pup. You didn’t deserve to die this way.

    I hope the couple spends the rest of their lives trying to defend them selves to their children, family, coworkers, neighbors, friends and strangers.

    Hows your dog!?
    Hey Alexander. Your a real father of the year. Your kids will never forget this.

    What is really wrong with people? Are they immune to compassion and common sense? The more I know people the more I love my dogs and dogs all over. They don’t lie, they don’t steal, they offered unconditional love, they would never betray you. The so called humans should learn from them instead of thinking they are at the top of the food chain which by the way is bulls… Evil is running rampant in the world, a hell of a conspiracy.

  15. Irene Mettlen says:

    These people are in denial of their minds! To leave a family member out there in those temperatures ! They couldn’t expect someone to Find her,they made sure of that! This is disturbing! RIP Sweet Tori , we are so sorry you was left all alone in a carrier! If he let the dog out of the carrier, she might have found someone to help her!????????????????

    Your selfish inhumane bastardsThere’s. Evil monsters should not own dogs. Put them in jail or they will kill another dog or cat

  17. Allison Lew says:

    Since this couple did this to their dog & children’s pet & then lied about it, perhaps their children should be permanently taken away from them. Imagine what else they are capable of doing to their children – emotionally, physically, spiritually. They need 2 go 2 jail.

    Who ever said humans are more valuable than dogs, never met this SOB
    Think about it and let it sink in, which would you rather see walking around on this earth, that puppy, or this low life motherfucker. Do you think that dog would have left him? He would have laid beside him and froze to death rather than leaving him. You do not want to know what I think should happen here.
