Once again United Airlines has made the news in another controversial action, the death of a pet.
The airline has a bad reputation for caring for pets onboard their cargo space and in their custody and this time is no different.
The latest death comes from a Houston family that reportedly lost their 5-year old King Charles Spaniel while onboard the airlines cargo when the airline was delayed for two hours before taking off to San Francisco.

The family spoke to Houston’s local ABC news station and said that their died while in custody of United Airlines.
In a statement released to Fox News, United said:
“We are so sorry to learn of LuLu’s passing and have reached out to our customer to offer our condolences and assistance. We are deeply upset any time an animal suffers an injury while traveling with us and especially grieved in the rare instance that one passes away. We are conducting a thorough review of this incident.”
In July another animal death  took place that resulted in the airline being sued. The airline’s neglect resulted in the death of a big bunny and the airline made the decision to cremate the animal before the owners could have a necropsy performed.
