It is always sad to hear of a pet’s death, especially when it’s unexpected. Authorities are currently investigating the deaths of seven puppies on a recent American Airlines flight. Flight 851 was headed towards Chicago when it experienced a one hour delay before taking off from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Directory of corporate communications, Mary Frances Fagan, said that the flight had 14 dog kennels on board that were “bound for other locations”. When ramp workers began the process of unloading the dogs, they noticed that the animals were unresponsive. The animals were taken from the airport to a local veterinarian, where they were announced dead. American Airlines transports over 100,000 animals every year and their website details the rules of pet travel. Unless your pet is small enough to fit in your carryon bag, he’ll have to be kenneled in the cargo area of the aircraft.
