Dog dies on flight after owner told to put in overhead bin

CBS News reported on the story, which went viral after a passenger on the flight posted a photo of the dog, who was named Papicito, after it died.

United Airlines apologized for the death of a 10-month-old puppy after its flights attendants forced the dog into an overhead compartment for three hours. "I want to help this woman and her daughter".

"I witnessed a United flight attendant instruct a woman to put her dog carrier with live dog in an overhead bin", she told One Mile at a Time, a travel website.

The Humane Society of the US says air travel can be risky for pets and especially unsafe for brachycephalic breeds - such as pugs or bulldogs, whose short nasal passages make them vulnerable to oxygen deprivation and heat stroke.

Gremminer explained that the dog barked twice during the 30 minutes after take off, then fell silent.

"There was no sound as we landed and opened his kennel".

"By the end of the flight, the dog was dead", says Gremminger.

"She sat in the airplane aisle on the floor crying, and all of surrounding passengers were utterly stunned".

Maggie Gremminger, who says she was a passenger on the flight, said the dog was traveling with a woman and her two children and was being kept in a TSA-approved dog carrier.

She also tweeted this picture of the party of three in arrivals.

The carrier has apologised for the tragic loss, saying "We assume full responsibility for this tragedy and express our deepest condolences to the family and are committed to supporting them".

A spokesperson for United said the airline will investigate the dog's death "to prevent this from ever happening again". Although nothing can replace the dog, it's good to know United is working to get to the bottom of the situation.

Gremminer said she has been offered $75 credit by the airline which, she said, just makes things worse.

Last year, 18 animals died while being transported on United - there were six cases on all other US carriers combined, according to the Department of Transportation.

Today, I boarded my first United Airlines flight.
