St. Louis-bound United flight diverted after pet mistakenly loaded onto plane

Then, days later, the airline sent a German Shepard that was supposed to go to Kansas was sent to Japan.

In the same week that a French bulldog apparently suffocated on a United flight and the airline wrongly sent a German Shepard to Japan, a flight had to be diverted because a pet was put on the wrong plane.

And so the plane followed the dog's itinerary.

United Airlines in a statement said the flight attendant did not realize the dog was inside the carrier and that she did not hear the passenger's warning. But an hour into the flight, the plane stopped in Ohio. United issued an apology after the discovery of the switched dogs.

"This little guy fought hard for his life, filling our flight with his cries until he finally ran out of breath", passenger June Lara wrote on Facebook after the incident.

An affidavit says the men broke a window to the imam's office and threw a pipe bomb containing black powder into the mosque. Morris also told the source that Hari said he would pay Morris and McWhorter $18,000 for their involvement.


The incident has brought upon a new policy for United Airlines. "This poor family paid $125 for their pet to be murdered in front of them". The pet was delivered safely to its owners and all passengers on the flight were compensated, United said. French bulldogs often develop respiratory problems, partly because of the way their faces are shaped, and are prone to heart defects and other diseases.

Prosecutors from the Harris County District Attorney's Office in Houston announced Thursday that they were reviewing Kokito's death to see whether animal cruelty charges are warranted.

The airline on Tuesday similarly placed a 10-year-old German shepherd named Irgo on a plane to Japan instead of the one traveling to his intended destination in Kansas City, Mo. The mix-up occurred during connecting flights in Denver.

Thankfully, Irgo's cross-Atlantic journey ended on Thursday and he is back home with his family.

United Airlines is making headlines for the third time this week after another pet mishap.
