Description of Animal:

Animal Name: Tamara

Description of Incident: Upon arrival on flight 1091, the dog was found loose in the belly of the A/C. The dog had chewed through the kennel and came out of the kennel. There was lots of blood on the outside of the kennel and the inside as well. I could not see any cuts on the face or paws. I am not sure if the blood was coming from her gums or tongue. I helped retrieve the dog from the belly of the A/C and I then brought the dog back to cargo. The dog was taken to the vet for a follow-up. I am waiting for confirmation on the status of the dog.

Cause of Incident: The animal was taken to Animal Hospital. The dog had bitten through her travel crate lacerating her tongue and gingival areas of the oral cavity. Xrays were taken. Antibiotics were given and release on 1/31/2020

Corrective Action Taken: N/A
