Fly That Pet at Your Own Risk

United Airlines is caught in yet another controversy surrounding the death of an animal

The airline, which has the worst record for pet deaths onboard their flights, is being held responsible by a Houston family for the death of their five-year-old King Charles Spaniel.

The Rasmussen family has claimed that United Airlines is responsible for the passing of their dog.

In a report to an ABC affiliate, the family said their dog was in the cargo hold of the plane when the flight was delayed and held on the tarmac for two hours before taking off to San Francisco.

During that time in the cargo hold, the family says their dog died.
