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 just sad. Inconsiderate people who just stash animals in a plane's cargo section are too cruel. Poor puppies.

Poor little things. This is just another aviodable tragedy. People dont seem to care when they transport their pets this way. Has the Airline been named?

This just has to stop. Who would put a puppy - or any animal - in the cargo section of an airplane? It's just cruel!

This is the horror of every dog owner who even considers shipping their dog. Bless their precious hearts, perhaps these puppies will not have died in vain if people pay attention and find alternate methods of having their dogs travel.
May they run free and happy over the Rainbow Bridge.

This is such a tragedy. Poor babies. We would never treat our human babies that way why would they let this happen especially during the summer months when the heat is a factor. Wouldn't they of thought that this could happpen? Maybe next time these people who are transporting animals will think of a different way to do it. I know people who transport animals in their vehicles from one place to another voluntarily so that this sort of thing would never happen.

How inhumane!!!!! I sure hope that the MONSTER who shipped them, is going to pay for what he did.
And to American Airlines, why would your workers not report what they saw? Why would they still put them in the cargo area? Don't understand.

I have no words for the evil and brutal perpetrators of these awful crimes. I only have concern for the blind indifference of the humans whom are aware of what is happening and do nothing to prevent it. This airline deserves to be named, shamed and brought to it's knees.

My family and I were stuck on the tarmac for almost five hours once on a VERY hot day. American Airline staff offered everyone in the cabin half a glass of water for the entire wait in that heat. And I'm talking those little teeny tiny plastic cups. If that is how they treat their human customers I have no trouble believing these senseless tragedies that just continue to happen to animals. My heart goes out to those little ones; what a horrific way to go. THIS MUST STOP!!!

there is no way i could drive because it's over the ocean... more than 14 hours away by plane..

The blame lies with ALL of the humans involved in the decision to allow this helpless pups to fly. More than likely a puppy mill making hundreds of dollars on these animals and their greed as well as employees of the airlines are at fault and have this on their hands for the rest of their lives. Hope they all sleep well.

So sorry, what a tragic waste of little lives. Should never happen. Animals are not luggage to be dumped in holds.

i am so sad to here about the puppies, my heart goes out to the people who had those puppies. seems to me they should have check on the puppies since it was an hour before they took off , and when you put animals in the cargo area there is no cool air circulating in there and you have luggage in there to so it's going to be 100 degrees in there. there are other ways of transporting animals from state to state , I would never use an air plane. search and check up on other ways before you transport animals anywhere.

Dear dear little dogs, I'm so so sad.
God's beautiful creatures were not created for uncaring, merciless humans to murder.
"Cruelty to animals is one of the most significant vices of a low and ignoble people. Wherever one notices them, they constitute a sign of ignorance and brutality which cannot be painted over even by all the evidence of wealth and luxury."
Alexander Von Humbolt
My little ones, you must be the last ones who will die in those bloody, horrible Airline flights, where ever in the world!!!
I and all my animal friends will fight for it.

The death of these dogs is an out rage. How can anyone do that to their animal. I feel bad for even taking my dog with me to california and we drove and stop several times through the trip making it longer for us. There is nothing that could make me fly my pet. I would rather drive then submit my dog or any animal to that.
