Dog found dead during Delta flight layover in Detroit

Dog found dead during Delta flight layover in Detroit

Michael Dellegrazie and his girlfriend put their Pomeranian in a kennel in a Delta Airlines flight's cargo hold.

"We know pets are an important member of the family and we are focused on the well-being of all animals we transport", the statement says. In March, a French bulldog died on a flight from Houston to NY after a United flight attendant told its owners to put the dog in an overhead bin.

The plane made a scheduled stop in Detroit, where Delta says a flight attendant checked on Alejandro at 6 a.m Wednesday.

Delta is "conducting a thorough review of the situation to find out more about why this may have occurred to ensure it doesn't happen again", the statement said, according to The Associated Press. "That's all I can think of", Dellegrazie said.

Oshan is hoping police can retrieve surveillance footage from Delta's cargo facility, which may show what happened to Alejandro. Airline representatives said they are working with Alejandro's owners and offered them a free necropsy to determine the cause of Alejandro's death. That's exactly what happened, and somebody has to be responsible for it.

"The family is very upset", Oshan told CNN.

Stefanik opposes tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada, now in effect
Canada announced plans to slap tariffs on $12.8 billion worth of USA products, ranging from steel to yogurt. Trudeau slammed the USA for the move, saying "these tariffs are totally unacceptable".

WDIV reported that Dellegrazie found blood stains on his dog's blanket.

United Airlines stopped its pet-shipping business in March after several dogs were put on wrong flights, but plans to resume shipping pets as cargo in July.

There were at least 4 dog deaths while in the care of US airlines this year.

Alejandro's is the latest in a string of pet deaths on board commercial airlines. "The family now has Alejandro and we continue to offer our support". He also represented the owners of a French bulldog puppy that died earlier this year after a United Airlines flight attendant ordered the dog's carrier to be stowed in an overhead bin.

The changes will not affect pets in the cabin.

In 2017, according to data from the Department of Transportation, out of the 506,994 animals transported by US airlines, there were 24 pet deaths, 15 injured and one loss.
