United Airlines Sends Family Dog to Wrong Country by Mistake

Kara Swindle was moving from OR to Kansas with her family on a United Airlines flight last Tuesday, with their pet German shepherd Irgo scheduled to fly on a separate flight.

"He's really special and I just think about him every day at school and I can't concentrate", Ceballos said.

The French bulldog was barking during the whole flight, according to multiple passenger accounts, but they did not discover that Kokito died until after the plane landed.

Irgo arrived on Thursday on a United Airlines corporate jet.

"An error occurred during connections in Denver for two pets sent to the wrong destinations". On Monday, a flight attendant made a passenger store her dog in an overhead bin on a flight from Houston.

United Airlines have an extremely poor record with animal welfare. "They're living, breathing, sentient things that are capable of suffering, capable of pain and capable of dying and they can not be treated as inanimate objects", advocate Constance Marino said. "This visual tag will further help our flight attendants identify pets in-cabin". "I suspect that in these cases, the animals, for liability purposes would be treated as - and I hate to say it - luggage".
