BANGOR, Maine — A spokesman for John Travolta says the actor's two dogs were leashed when they were run over and killed at Maine's Bangor International Airport.

Paul Bloch said Tuesday that the dogs were being walked from the tarmac to a grassy area when the accident happened last Thursday. The city says a service vehicle struck and killed the dogs after the airplane carrying members of Travolta's family landed.

The "Saturday Night Fever" and "Pulp Fiction" actor is an accomplished pilot who often flies to Bangor while en route to his home on Islesboro, off the Maine coast. It's unclear whether he was in the cockpit the night his dogs died.

Airport Director Rebecca Hupp says the incident is under investigation.
