Live Animal Incident Report (Redacted) Cargo Incident Report Type: Injury Date of Incident: February 9, 2013 Location: Atlanta, GA Routing: Charlotte, NC (CLT) – Atlanta, GA (ATL) – San Antonio, TX (SAT) Flight - 1095 AWB: 006-05430876 Description of Animal: 2yr old male Red Pitbull, named “Kash” Description of Incident: Kash was accepted for transport on DL1095 on February 9, 2013, at our cargo facility in CLT. All documents were reviewed and processed in accordance with Delta’s live animal procedures. Flight 1095 departed CLT on time and the local temperature was approximately 56ºF. All required labels and markings were attached to the exterior of the kennel. Agents at CLT stated the dog was calm and there were no issues at the time of loading. On the flight’s arrival into ATL, Kash and one other dog was removed from DL1095. As our ATL agent was delivering Kash to his next departure gate, the agent overheard loud barking coming from the transporter. The agent pulled over near gate B32 to determine why the animal was continuously barking. He observed blood on the floor of the transporter and upon further observation he could see that Kash had chewed halfway through the side of his container. He immediately secured the transporter to prevent Kash from escaping and contacted management for assistance. Kash was taken to Briarcliff Animal Clinic for an examination. The veterinarian reported bruising to his face, torn nails and a few missing bottom teeth. He remained overnight at Briarcliff for further monitoring and rest. On February 11th Kash was released and Delta Cargo was given clearance for Kash to continue his journey to Texas. Cause of Incident: Self inflicted wounds Corrective Action Taken: None Warranted
