Yesterday, we told you about a rally to save the Frontier animals, as well as the airlines' name, which could be changed by its new owner, Republic Airways Holdings as early as April despite the popularity of wacky ads like its latest, in which a cougar asks, "Who wouldn't like five more inches?"
In the end, the rally attracted well over a hundred enthusiastic Frontier supporters, including Ken Odey, a pilot and a gift photographer who's kindly allowed us to show off some highlights from the day. Page through the photo gallery below to get a sense of the enthusiasm for Griz the bear and his friends.
