Woman Blames UA For Death of Beloved Dog

Woman Blames UA For Death of Beloved Dog
Ryan Boyd

Kathleen Considine of Dearborn, Michigan, claims United Airlines is responsible for the death of her golden retriever, Jacob, because of a layover in Chicago for a flight from Detroit to Portland. The dog was only supposed to travel for a total of 10 hours, but Jacob did not make it home until over 24 hours later, and he was reportedly ill and weak upon arrival. He later died from a stomach complication, which Considine believes was exacerbated by the stress Jacob underwent while in airline’s care.

“United Airlines ‘PetSafe’ program is cruel,” Considine said in a Facebook post.

“They treat animals like baggage. They did not care if Jacob had food or water or any time out of his cage. They are incredibly rude and have shown no sympathy for my dog’s death. I would have received the same responses if they were to have broken my guitar in baggage.”

    Not to be mean, but I wouldn’t even put myself on a flight with a one hour connection in Chicago in the middle of winter much less a dog. Aircraft substitutions happen and when they do, the aircraft may not have enough time to get the cabin heated and ready to carry live animals.
