Video Goes Viral After Appearing on Social Media

The video was shared on Reddit by ProfessionalEye3568 who said she originally thought the dog was being unruly. But she went on to say that as she watched the video, she believed the dog's handler was being too rough with the animal.

“I was shocked at how this airport handler is dragging this poor pup around,” she wrote. “There’s no reason anyone should be flipping a working dog around by its harness like this.”

Other users agreed and the video was widely shared across social media platforms.

TSA Issues a Statement

Mark Howell is the Regional Spokesperson for the Transportation Security Administration. Howell issued the following statement:

"Video showing a TSA explosive detection canine handler aggressively pulling a dog working in a Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) terminal was shared with local leadership this morning.

The behavior displayed by this handler is unacceptable and not within the high standards we hold our officers to.

TSA officials at DTW have removed the employee from handling duties pending completion of an investigation, and directed that the canine be taken immediately to a veterinarian for a wellness exam."

What was left behind was reclaimed by nature and tough to see for those that loved spending time there. Take a look at the sad nostalgia in decay.
