Dog found dead in cargo hold on Delta Air Lines flight

Dog found dead in cargo hold on Delta Air Lines flight

A Pomeranian dog by the name of Alejandro has reportedly died on a Delta Airlines flight from Phoenix, Arizona to Newark, New Jersey.

Delta spokeswoman Lisa Hellerstedt told CNN there was "vomit and fluids" in the dog's cage.

The owner of a dog that died following a Delta flight accused the airline of attempting to cover up the incident by washing away potential evidence.

Delta said it knows pets are important members of the family and is working with the owners to find out what happened.

But just two hours later, when he was checked on again, the dog was dead.

While Dellagrazie waits to find out what killed Alejandro after the Delta flight, he said the bottom line is his dog "was in their care, and they didn't take care of him".

The airline added that it had offered arrange for a necropsy to be performed on the dog, but they were not allowed. The police taped off the pickup area and documented areas of the "crime scene", accoring to his lawyer, but Dellegrazie said the exchange felt surreal.

"I think this stretches beyond just pets", Mr Oshan told WXYZ-TV.

Dellegrazie also questioned why Delta chose to notify his girlfriend instead of contacting him.

Alejandro was found dead on a layover in Detroit in the space of a half-hour.

"I couldn't figure out why they were all wet".

Delta, in a statement to ABC News, said it's offered to have the dog evaluated by a veterinarian and officials are looking into what happened.

Delta Airlines says it is investigating the death of a dog on board one of its planes, CBS New York reports. "He's a member of our family". One of the deceased pets included a kitten that died during a layover in Minneapolis during a trip from Indianapolis to Bozeman, Montana. "That's exactly what happened, and someone has to be responsible for it", Dellegrazie said.

The airline apologized to the family following the incident. The 9-month-old puppy, Kokito, died after he stopped breathing on a flight from Houston to NY, after a flight attendant told the owner to put him in the overhead bin rather than under the seat.
