Pepper was spotted several times in non-public areas of the airport but eluded capture.

Then on Saturday the officer who led the rescue effort enlisted the help of a friend of Pepper’s owner.

The friend called Pepper by her Mandarin name and enticed her with food. The officer and the friend then grabbed Pepper and put her in a carrier.
