Incident 2 Carrier: Alaska Airlines Flight: 102 (Anchorage, AK to Seattle, WA) Date of incident: Thursday, October 10, 2013 Time of incident: Approximately 9:31 PM PT Description of animal (including name): A 4-year-old male, Golden Retriever, named Shooter. Narrative description of incident: Upon arrival into Seattle, our Supervisor was called to meet the dog’s owner who was upset by the wire door of his dog’s kennel being pulled inward. The dog’s owner would not allow our Supervisor to examine the kennel, nor take photos of the kennel for our investigation. Our Supervisor noted that the latch was still attached but the wire kennel door was pulled inward and could see blood on the door, however the dog appeared okay. Narrative description of the cause of the incident: A 4-year-old male, Golden Retriever, apparently pawed at the wire kennel door, pulling it inward. The kennel remained latched and some blood was present on the door. There is no evidence to suggest that the airline’s handling contributed to the animal’s kennel damage. Narrative description of any corrective action taken in response to the incident: No action required. No photographs available
