Criminal Investigation Launched Into Dog's Death On United Flight

The puppy's owners and passengers said they protested as a stewardess put Kokito - inside an approved carrier - into the storage area before the plane left Houston.

United said that despite the puppy owner telling the flight attendant that there was a dog in the carrying case, the flight attendant either did not hear or did not understand that there was a pet in the bag, and "did not knowingly place the dog in the overhead bin".

"It's like unbelievable how he had to suffer like that", said Robledo.

Just recently a flight attendant of the airline kept a crate that had a dog in it in the overhead bin of the aircraft. But Gremminger said the flight attendant, whose name she did not know, appeared distraught after the flight in NY when she learned that the dog had died.

Budenz believes the dog died of heatstroke. United, for their part, called the family liars and said the flight attendant didn't know it was a dog.

A day later, United conceded that it mistakenly shipped another dog that was bound for Kansas City, Mo., to Japan. The owner of the German shepherd, named Irgo, says he's expected home on Thursday night, and the Great Dane that should have been flown to Tokyo should have already arrived as its correct destination.

"They had no idea where the dog was.I burst into tears instantly because this has just all been a whirlwind".

"I honestly don't know if he's going to survive this flight".

Ceballos was justifiably anxious about putting the pup overhead, and other passengers voiced concern over what they had seen. "You're animal could be on any number of flights".

According to social media posts from June Lara and Maggie Gremminger, two passengers on the flight, a United Airlines flight attendant insisted to the family that Kokito needed to be stored in the overhead bin of the plane.

All of the airlines combined transported more than 500,000 animals in cargo holds in 2017, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.

On Wednesday, Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana said he wants answers about what happened. Catalina went back and forth with the flight attendant refusing to allow her puppy to be put in the overhead bin.

Last April, a doctor was dragged off a flight screaming after he refused to give up his seat for a United employee.

"For many people, pets are members of the family. We are thoroughly investigating what occurred to prevent this from ever happening again". "Pets should never be placed in the overhead bin", it added.
