A dog caused a stir early Thursday morning on the tarmac at John G.Diefenbaker International Airport in Saskatoon.
Shortly after 9:00 am, the pilot of an Air Canada flight had to go back on his approach to his runway.
He had just been informed that a dog had escaped from his cage near the track.
According to Transport Canada, an aerodrome maintenance crew chased the restless animal running in all directions.
The authorities do not specify where the dog came from or how he got to the track.
The Air Canada flight landed safely about 15 minutes later.
