    Animal rights will go nutters over this

    Runaway Aviation Security dog shot after holding up flights at Auckland International Airport - National - NZ Herald News

    A runaway Aviation Security dog has been shot after causing runway delays at Auckland International Airport this morning.

    An Auckland Airport spokeswoman confirmed that the dog had been shot but did not know if the animal had died as a result.

    WERE YOU ON ONE OF THE DELAYED FLIGHTS? DID YOU WITNESS IT? SEND US AN EMAIL

    It is understood 16 domestic and international flights were delayed as ground staff tried to catch the animal after it broke away from its handler at about 4am.

    "We did everything we could to try and catch the dog, but we couldn't," the spokeswoman said.


    "It had been on the outer perimetre of the airfield.

    "It got loose at 4am and we spent three-and-a-half hours trying to catch him... they did everything they could, but unfortunately it had to be shot.

    "It's really said, it's a working dog and they are very important to us at the airport."



    The Herald is seeking comment from Aviation Security spokesperson Mike Richards.

    How the f**k does a "trained" dog not come to its owner?

    Probably a drug dog that had been doing a bit too much "sniffing".

    i've seen one of my uncles heading dogs get spooked and spent a night out in bush on the hill when we were mustering - it skulked around in the bush just out of sight and the more he tried to get the dog the more elusive/spooked it became. left the land rover out on the track and we walked home. next morning the dog was calm and on the back of the truck. he had owned it since it was a pup and had never had problems before. i can't recall what spooked it in the first place
    this airport story feels quite similar in some ways, must have been bloody frustrating/sad for the dog owner/handler

    On the TV this morning they didn't know if it was shot with a tranculizer or just shot. Or maybe they knew but didn't want to say.
    Reporting what they want you to think not what is fact?

    I'd imagine a noisy airfield could easily spook a soft or highly strung dog, goven that they are never outside and exposed to 200db flying monsters. Then you put 20 baggage handlers out there chasing it around and yelling at it and it would be in a real state in no time. Still, every dog has his price and 16 international flights is an expensive mutt.

    Me too. I don't know who Bevan is, but it makes a nice change from blaming Asian investors or baby boomers which our media loves to do these days. Bad Bevan
