About 7 Dogs that died on American Airlines

In Memory of the Seven Dogs that Died after an American Airlines Flight

This memorial is remembering the seven puppies that died tragically after being transported as cargo on an American Airlines flight to Chicago.

Flight 851 was an hour late taking off from Tulsa, Oklahoma, Tuesday morning. The flight arrived at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport by 9 a.m. with 14 dog kennels on board.

All the dogs were bound for other locations, but when ramp workers began the process of moving the dogs to the other flights, they noticed that the puppies looked so lethargic that they were taken from the airport to a veterinarian. Seven of the fourteen dogs later died.

The American Airlines website details rules for accepting dogs and cats on an aircraft. It says that "Temperature restrictions have been established to ensure animals are not exposed to extreme heat or cold." The website says pets cannot be accepted when the current or forecasted temperature is warmer than 85 degrees at any location on the itinerary. However, temperature at Tulsa International Airport was already 86 degrees at 7 a.m. before the plane's departure, and 87 degrees by 8 a.m.

Please help remember these puppies by making a donation to help other animals in need.

All memorial contributions to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals will help PETA contnuie its lifesaving work in behalf of animals. Any gift that you are able to make is greatly appreciated.

This is so sad. There has to be a better way.
Claire - I'm pretty sure those 7 puppies already have owners + homes, so they'll probably be going back to those people.

My heart actually hurts from reading this story. I sent an email to American Airlines urging them to stop this insanity of shipping animals in the cargo hold. How can people be so cruel..I just don't get it.

So sad. Animals should not be shipped like cargo.

This is so terribly awful. I will never board my dogs as cargo--ever.
