As a wildfire in Fort McMurray, Alberta causes destruction akin to "a war zone," it appears Canadian North airlines is letting pets normally consigned to the cargo area ride alongside their humans, according to CBC Nova Scotia.

"It's pretty challenging," Vice President of Edmonton International Airport, Traci Bednard, told CBC News regarding the extreme demand for flights out of the area. While commercial airline service was suspended from Fort McMurray for a time, "airlines, such as Canadian North, stepped in to help with evacuations."

It seems that meant bending the rules a little bit, and giving up elbow-room to accommodate more paws.

One of these dogs may have taken an Ambien.

Canadian commenters loved the gesture, as did the rest of the world.

Even more polite than usual.
