    It's not the first time it's happened, years ago one escaped from cargo & ran around the airport before they caught it.
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!

    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    I think it was Bevans day off.

    Dog probably licked some dish washing liquid and went nuts

    Latest version of the herald article had more info. Was a not fully trained dog on its first familiarisation to the airport. Got out when they were putting it back in the vehicle. Got through to airplane side when a gate opened and let a truck out.
    The dog didn't have just one handler which is why it was reluctant to come to the handler.

    Guys you can't blame Bevan until he tells us how he caused the problem.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Yep you know those planes were full of Asian Investors and Baby Boomers rushing to get to their over priced real estate.

    Unfortunately tranquilizer guns are very short range and maybe the dog wasn't coming close?

    I don't think animal rights people will go too nuts over this, it's just a sad situation all round

    The handler who failed to get the dog into the vehicle will feel guilty

    There's all kinds of flow on effects for delays to flights. It's like a domino effect. Crews have duty time limits, similar to truckies. If they can't do the flight within their duty time, they can't fly, and the timer starts well before the wheels leave the ground. Back-up crews would need to be called in, delaying the flight further. Passengers may have connecting flights. Those particular aircraft have other flights to do after the delayed one, and those might get delayed too if it's late arriving. Cargo, passengers and catering off. New stuff on. Cabin clean. Refuel. Engineering checks. Airlines pay for a slot at an airport gate, and other airlines flying to same airport from elsewhere have also paid for same gate, expecting it to be vacated by a set time.

    Shoot the dog.
