7 Puppies Die On Airline Flight

I was just sick when I read about those poor puppies dying on an Airplane waiting to take off for it's flight. The temp got too hot.It's a very agonizing death for a dog to have heat stroke,they die through their tougue and feet is what I've been told, no matter what I just feel so bad for them. What do you feel about this?

  • I had not heard about this. It is totally inexcusable though. Not reason for that to happen if people were doing their job.

  • :(
    First I've heard of it, how sad.
    You would think that they would have proper procedures to keep the animals cool and comfortable. They arent just suitcases.Dumb asses.

  • I hadn't heard of this but, sadly, I am not surprised. I know that pets that fly are not treated well. my parents' cat did not even get any water for many many hours due to an unexpected delay. I would never fly my pets unless I absolutely had t, and I pray I will never be in that situation!

  • That pisses me off!!! Airlines should do something more to protect the animals. If they offer to fly them then they need to make it to where they are comfortable. I feel bad for those poor puppies. How would the people who decided where pets should fly like it if they had to fly that way?

  • WOW!! I can't believe theOwners would let them go in the Cargo or the Airlines! The Airlines know how Hot it is in there! I got pissed the last time i flew with my dog on the plane with me & the Stewardess told me to Stuff her bag All the way Under the Seat- There was no way i could do that without her being Squshed to death- i told her i would put her as far as i could but she was going to comfortable or they could let us off- She left me alone after that- i also told her that she was Not my Carry- on! They need to make New Guidelines for animals flying! That is Horrifying!

  • Should never have happened! It does surprise my though, most airlines that fly pets, have regulations that specifically state months of the year they cannot fly. And, about flying cargo-they always have unless you by them a seat or fly with them to fly as a carry on. But the do have to be small enough for that. My puppies that have flown to me from other countries have never been small enough.
