Carrier: Delta Air Lines Flight Number: 1267 Date & Time of Incident: 10/11/2017 Type of Incident: Injury Description of Animal: Breed: Other Animal Name: Brady Description of Incident: A pet dog “Brady” was accepted in Tampa, FL (TPA) for transport to Bermuda, VI (BDA). The canine was accepted in apparent good health with all documentation present. Brady was then transported from Tampa cargo to the aircraft for loading and staged in a ventilated area under shelter. The curtain of the transport cart was opened to allow air movement; the agent saw the dog had chewed through the metal door of the kennel and was outside of the kennel but in the transport conveyance. Before the agent could react to corral the dog, Brady jumped through the opened transport and escaped. The aircraft loading team immediately alerted airport authorities and local air carrier leadership of the event to begin search and rescue efforts. Brady was ultimately located and recovered on 26OCT by Animal Control on the Tampa airport property. Animal Control released Brady to the owners who took her to a local veterinarian for injuries sustained while escaping the kennel. Cause of Incident: The canine suffered self-inflicted injuries during its efforts to chew its way out of the primary conveyance. Corrective Action Taken:
