Dog found dead in carrier during Delta layover

Dog found dead in carrier during Delta layover

When a couple moving from Phoenix to NY arrived at the airport in Newark, New Jersey, they were horrified to find their beloved dog Alejandro dead on Wednesday.

"When he landed here in MI, he was alive at 6:30 a.m., and then at 8:20, he wasn't moving and it just doesn't make any sense to me", the dog's owner, Michael Dellagrazie said in an interview with WDIV-TV, referring to his Pomeranian, Alejandro.

According to Delta, Alejandro was checked on during a stop in Detroit, Michigan and again two hours later.

Evan Oshan also represented the family of Kokito, the French bulldog that died on a United flight earlier this year. "He's a member of our family". "To say they are upset is a gross understatement".

"We know pets are an important member of the family and we are focused on the well-being of all animals we transport". The airline says it's working with Alejandro's family to support them and has offered a free necropsy to have Alejandro evaluated.

Delta tells WXYZ-TV in a statement that it is "conducting a thorough review of the situation".

"This was a tragic accident that should have never occurred, as pets should never be placed in the overhead bin", United Airlines said in response to the online outrage. The dog was traveling in a kennel in the cargo hold of the jet. The temperature range at Phoenix Sky Harbor on Tuesday was 75 to 102, with an average of 89 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. According to the spokesperson, the dog was not transferred onto the flight from Detroit to Newark.

There have been several high-profile airline incidents involving pets this year, prompting airlines to review their policies. Michael Dellegrazie, the owner, said the dog was alive when the flight from Phoenix, Ariz., landed at the airport around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday for a scheduled layover. Airport police were outside of the area with Alejandro's owner and his attorney. It was settled in late May.

Oshan appealed to President Trump and other high-profile officials on Twitter to "get justice" for the dog in that case.
