Terrier Attack: Causes plane to divert

It was a terrier, not a terrorist, that caused a US Airways flight to be diverted Monday morning to Pittsburgh. A spokesman for US Airways has confirmed that a dog got loose on board a plane, and the captain decided to divert to Pittsburgh.

Mandy, a 12-pound Manchester terrier, burst from her carrier in the passenger’s compartment when sedatives began wearing off. The 89-year-old owner of the dog had sedated the animal before the flight that made Mandy became agitated. The owner brought the dog out from under her seat to try to calm her down. When a passenger whose seating next to them tried to calm her, she bit it and broke out of her cage. One of the planes attendant tried to grab Mandy down but was bitten instead.

Though the injuries were minor, it prompted the pilot to divert the Newark-to-Phoenix flight to Pittsburgh as a precaution to make sure everything was okay and also to treat those who are injured. After being treated they then got back on the plane to continue their journey. However, separate transportation was arranged for Mandy and it's owner.

Now, is it time for airlines to add a "beware of dog" warning to their flight safety instructions? What do you think?
