Pet dog is shot dead after it breaks free at Honolulu Airport

Leisha Ramos had just returned to her home island of Oahu when a series of events led to a security guard fatally shooting her dog, Kai‘ele, at Honolulu Airport.

“I was just in shock. … He was such a sweetheart,” said Ramos, 25. “He never attacked anybody.”

State Department of Transportation spokesman Tim Sakahara declined to provide details, saying the incident is still under investigation.

Securitas Security Serv­ices USA, which provides security at the airport, did not respond to a query about the airport incident.

1. The dog broke its chain and was approaching the security guard

Some may say charging.

Lets say the security guard lets an unattended dog stay on a chain in a public area, and a child wandering by just wants to pet the doggie. The airport would be found liable for any injury to the child. The dog was aggressive enough to break its chain and break away from its owner's grasp.
