In an update to yesterday’s post, it appears that United Airlines has made another serious error this week when transporting a dog.
A 10 year old German Shepherd should have been travelling with his owners on a 1,641 mile internal flight from Oregon to Kansas. Upon landing, the owners were handed a Great Dane. Irgo the German Shepherd had instead been taken on a 5,026 mile international flight to Japan.
Flying is a stressful event for all animals, let alone an elderly dog and a giant dog. The German Shepherd presumably faces a flight of 6,219 miles to get to Kansas.
It was not recorded where the Great Dane should have been.
