A heartbreaking situation has taken place at New Zealand’s Auckland Airport. According to Friday’s CNN, a puppy in the final stages of training to become a bomb detection dog escaped from his handler and was subsequently shot and killed.
The Auckland Airport utilized its Twitter account to keep followers apprised of the situation – it was on the Twitter account that the news of the puppy’s death was released:
Unfortunately an Aviation Security dog was shot this morn
@AKL_Airport staff had tried for 3 hours to catch it our thoughts are with handler
The pup, named “Grizz,” was six months away from graduating – officials stated that they attempted to capture him by using treats and toys, but their efforts failed. Animal lovers have expressed anger and dismay that nobody used a tranquilizer gun to subdue the pup, rather than a gun.
