Security forces at Tan Son Nhat Airport killed a dog Tuesday night as it entered and was running around the airside area.
Dang Tuan Tu, director of the international airport, told Tuoi Tre newspaper that the dog “got lost” into the aircraft area and security agents had tried to shoo it away from the runway.
They killed it after 15 minutes, Tu said, without specifying how.
He said the incident did not affect flight schedule.
The security forces said the dog might have come from a house near the terminal and they have started checking all fences surrounding the airport.
