    A commenter on Fark (link to comment) claims to have been bitten by a TSA dog:

    It's not a matter of training, the poor pooch was confused and thought he WAS a "two-legged TSA", although the exact reasons are unclear, perhaps:

    1. He needed the pizza to maintain his body mass.
    2. He just wanted to steal the pizza because he could.
    3. He wanted to be sure he had called right number of apply for his job.

    I'm sure that when pressed, and internal investigation lead by thee TSA will show that (wait for it....!) 'all proper procedures were follow, the handler and dog didn't nothing wrong.'
    :rolleyes:

    Wouldn't an incident where a working dog bites a person be a legal matter? I don't see how TSA can just walk away from this, especially since local police are involved.

    This victim should be contacting a lawyer and not talking about what happened.

    Plus, it's just one more "layer of security".....

    Three more layers -- box bottom, pizza, box top, each as effective as TSA's current 21 layers.

    In Texas that dog would be quarantined for 14 days for observation. Also a slough of tickets and charges for owner & dog

    Based on the account/incident above that dog is not fit for what ever "training" it has, just like it's handler.
    This person needs to clam up grab a lawyer and put a boot in TSAs throat in court and in the press.

    Well yes, but a LOT of things the TSA does would be jail worthy in any other setting if done by anyone else and yet.....

    Except that it's a federal mutt with supremacy and immunity.

    I think it's beyond 'federal" if the FBI agent had a dog on duty and it bit an innocent bystander, there's still recourse and accountability.
    I can't say the same for TSA.

    How much you all want to bet this dog like all of TSA oxygen wasters are habitual repeat offenders and this isn't the dogs first unprovoked attack?

    Mike I don't know I know of LE dogs that have been put down or destroyed on scene for attacks/maulings.

    But what about the canine?

  15. The shocking part of this story to me is that the handler was just going to go about her business, no apology, no nothing. If that is the level of ignorance and disregard of the TSA's dog handlers, I'm 100% against the TSA using dogs.

    They were trying to flee. The first instinct of cowards unwilling to face the consequences of their acts.

    I ignore most of it but TSA & DHS put out a lot of press releases about their dog training program. If this is representative of the program, it's a flop. Trained police dogs don't go after people's pizza.

    TSA training across the board is a flop. TSA employees are the most non-professional group of people to ever step in an airport. No surprises here.

    Here's a dog bite case that the TSA weaseled out of:
