A sad story comes over the Craigslistwire, where a poster says a 19 month old English Bulldog died on a Delta flight Wednesday night. They posted photos of the dog, postmortem, and say the NY ASPCA refuses to get involved, claiming it's a civil matter and they don't handle airport deaths. The dog was found dead, allegedly having froze to death, after the plane landed at JFK airport.
Last month another puppy froze to death on a flight bound for the same airport. There are temperature restrictions "to ensure animals are not exposed to extreme heat or cold in the animal holding areas, terminal facilities, when moving the animals between terminal and aircraft or on an aircraft"—so why does this keep happening? We've contacted the APSCA as well as Delta for comment, and will update when we hear back.
