Guess what caused this damage inside this forward bulk compartment of a Boeing 757? A detonation? Wrong. Explosive decompression? Try again. A mad Pit Bull? You got it! A Pit Bull in serious need of TLC escaped from his kennel in the forward bin and decided to chew through reinforced fiberglass, coaxial cables and other wires. The flight reportedly lost TCAS, both ATC transponders and a VHF/VOR receiver. The damage was so serious, it caused the operator to establish a new policy of not accepting animals of any kind with the potential of doing such damage. Dangerous cargo takes a whole new meaning...
