The reader who sent this MAS webcam grab cropped it but indicated it was in the isolation area at about 1635 today and that the incident went on for longer than this one shot. The reader reports observing the brown dog on a chokepole.
As far as I can tell via the webcams, the only entrance to this isolation area is at the far end of the room, opposite of where this encounter is taking place. There is no entrance at this end of the room. Therefore, I don’t see how this could possibly have been one worker “surprising” another by coming around a corner.
Which category will this one fall under – Isolated incident? We don’t know what happened the second before and the second after? You are not seeing what you are seeing? Whatever the inevitable justification from MAS might be, it looks concerning to me. What do you think is going on here?
