An Indigo Airlines Airbus A320-200N, registration VT-ITK performing flight 6E-468 from Goa to Mumbai (India), was accelerating for takeoff from Goa's runway 26 when a stray dog sprinted onto the runway prompting the crew to rejected takeoff at high speed (about 150 knots over ground). The aircraft slowed safely but became disabled with a number of main tyres deflating due to brakes overheating. The passengers disembarked via stairs and were taken back to the terminal.

Maintenance replaced a number of tyres, the aircraft was able to depart about 2:50 hours later and reached Mumbai with a delay of 2:45 hours.
