I have a few things to say about this:
1. This flight attendant knew the dog was in there because it was BARKING so she can't claim she didn't know.
2. She also knew the policy of keeping animals in their carriers under the seat and was just trying to be difficult with these passengers
3. United takes full responsibly so this attendant should be handled accordingly and formal charges should be pressed against her for animal welfare endangerment & cruelty.
4. I want to know why other passengers didn't speak up. If I saw this being done to someone else's animal and it clearly barking, I'd 100% risk being taken off of the plane in order to stand up for what is right.
This dog's life was just taken and it clearly suffocated to death....What are your thoughts?
