Feel sorry for the little blighter getting so enthusiastically euthanased like that. They get very touchy about that sort of thing down there. Ozzy immigration apparently used to euthanase animals down there that, travelling in cages via India, used to break out inflight in the hold. I've known hold doors opened in Australia to see panting dogs looking very proud of themselves lying on top of a collapsed box. As the flight transitted India, nobody could guarantee exactly when the animal escaped, so I've seen them being firmly led off. I recall asking what its fate was to be to be told 'kept in quarantine', but I'm not sure I believed them- like when your son says "Dad! Is that dog dead?" 'No Son- it's only sleeping in the road!"
