Stressed dog chews through plane's wiring


A stressed dog in a plane's luggage compartment chewed through an engine's wires mid-flight.

A New Zealand dog apparently didn't appreciate being placed in the luggage compartment of an airplane headed for Melbourne, Australia. He showed his displeasure by doing everything he could to bring down the aircraft.

The pooch escaped from his kennel during the flight and chewed through electrical wiring and interior panels. Luckily, the auxiliary engine the wires led to had been shut down after takeoff, negating any risk to the plane or its passengers.

When ground handlers opened the cargo doors, they found an angry, distressed dog. Maybe next time his owners will upgrade his seat to first class.
