Runaway dog forces São Paulo-Congonhas Airport closure

A runaway dog ran onto the tarmac at São Paulo-Congonhas Airport, SP (CGH/SBSP), Brazil on December 9, 2010 forcing the airport authorities to close the airport.

The pinscher dog escaped from the hands of its owner at the TAM Cargo centre, Brazilian news web site D24am, reported. The airport was closed from 12:17 to 12:41 because the runaway dog was considered a safety risk as it could have entered the active runway. Four flights were delayed as airport personnel searched for the dog.
The dog was not found and the airport was reopened for traffic.
