    New Zealand police fatally shoot airport security dog

    Named Grizz, the dog was being trained to detect explosives by New Zealand's Aviation Security Service and was about six months from graduating.

    So sad. Grizz was such a handsome dog. I've heard of dogs getting loose on the tarmac before, but with better results. Was there no other solution in this case?

    Dog was cute but sure sounds like he wasn't suited for work at the airport if he kept running from everyone.
    An obedient dog should presumably just come if called by a trainer.
    Regardless, why did they have to shoot the dog?
    Just my opinion
