I, as a dog owner, can only imagine how scared that poor animal would have been with what was probably the Keystone Cops running around after him.

I'm sorry AVSEC but until you can prove that you treat all your dogs properly you can't have any!

So if a person was running around on 25L at LAX, they would probably be shot
by the fed's pronto!!.... no bleeding heart outcry...!! and all would agree s/he deserved it.

I'm rather surprised at the number of people here who believe that a young dog that was new to the airport environment, would act rationally when scared and stay away from aircraft. Animals don't act rationally when scared, certainly not in our sense of the word.

If it was a person trying to cause harm to aircraft or something else out there, yes, probably shot. If it was a child that had got disorientated and somehow escaped onto 25L at LAX - probably not shot. No bambi effect. Just some disgruntlement at the handling of a situation.

And personally, I like dogs, and would prefer to have seen it handled in a more humane and professional manner.

For those who think the dog would run from an aircraft, there was a FSA article* a few years ago about a charter bloke in the top end who had a dog, "accustomed to aircraft" apparently, run into the prop disk.

As there was no phone around, he flew 20 mins to the nearest one, and on shutdown, checked the prop again and one blade could be rotated the full 360* in the hub.

Unfortunately, there aren't any guarantees with this kind of thing...

*And do you think I can find that article now??
