- Golden labrador mix named Greta being transported to new home
- Authorities said they had no option but to use lethal force
Officials in the Canadian city of Winnipeg have launched a review after a two-year-old rescue dog was shot and killed after she slipped out of her crate at the city’s airport and scampered on to the runway, forcing one flight to abort its landing.
Airport authorities received a call about a dog on the tarmac earlier this week. The dog, later identified as a golden labrador mix named Greta who was being shipped from a northern Manitoba community to a Winnipeg foster home, had seemingly chewed through her plastic kennel and bolted after staff opened the plane door.
