[POLL] Should Grizz have been killed?

Auckland Airport is acknowledging the public outcry after 10-month-old trainee security dog Grizz was shot dead and is promising its own investigation.

Grizz escaped from his handler while being loaded into the back of an Avsex Explosive Detector Dog van on Friday morning. He managed to get through the security area when a gate opened to let a truck through.

The Civil Aviation Authority says it did everything it could to catch Grizz but after three hours, and 16 domestic and international flight interruptions, airport staff directed police to shoot him.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
