Bomb Detector Puppy Killed for Escaping Handlers – Demand Justice

Target: Richard Chambers, Auckland Police District Commander and Superintendent

Goal: Reprimand officers who shot and killed an innocent bomb detector dog.

A 10-month-old bomb detector puppy, named Grizz, was shot to death by police while training to be an Aviation Security Explosion Detector. Grizz, who was was only six months away from graduating, escaped from his handlers and that’s when the Airport’s Emergency Operations Center team decided to have the bearded collie “destroyed.”

The poor dog was killed an hour after the airport had posted to Twitter that they captured him. It seems the decision to “destroy” the innocent, harmless puppy was unnecessary, especially when police could’ve attempted to use less fatal methods of capturing Grizz. As the Ambassador of SAFE for Animals, Hans Kriek, asked, “why wasn’t a tranquilizer used instead?”

This innocent puppy’s life was devoted to helping people and saving lives, yet his life was carelessly taken by the same people he was training to protect. His death is nothing short of a tragedy that deserves justice. Please add your signature to the petition below to help ensure that Grizz gets the justice he deserves, and the officers who killed him be harshly reprimanded.


Dear Mr. Chambers,

An innocent dog was training to be an Aviation Security Explosion Detector when police shot and killed him. This poor dog was killed for no other reason than having ran off from his handlers. The police killed him an hour after the airport stated they had him captured on Twitter.

This senseless tragedy could’ve been averted if police had bothered to attempt to capture the dog using non-lethal methods first, but they didn’t. We demand that the officers involved be harshly reprimanded for killing the innocent animal who did nothing to deserve it.

  1. I am tired of these sick minded individuals. Please, let the PUNISHMENT fits the crime.

    God-damned police! “None of them” should be in “any” position that involves authority of any form. They are totally incompetent – and deserve some “serious” punishment for killing this defenseless puppy – but then of course that isn’t going to happen. Bastards like this are always getting away with “murder” – yes that’s exactly what it is – “murder” – – –
