'Dog-in' protest at LaGuardia following death of dog on United flight

Animal lovers gather in New York to protest the death of a dog

Alcantara's legislation would explicitly ban placing pets in overhead bins on flights, among other measures.

A dog died when a passenger was ordered by a flight attendant to place her dog in an overhead bin during a flight from Houston to New York's Laguardia Airport. The flight crew said the case was blocking the aisle, so a flight attendant put it in the overhead storage bin, according to Kokito's owner, Catalina Robledo.

The dog was found dead in its carrier. New York State Senator Marison Alcantara (D-Manhattan) will be joined by the dog's family, along with animal activists and their pets in a protest against the airline. They are not objects.

The company flew into its third doggy drama in a week on Thursday after loading a dog on the wrong plane - again!

The dog's death has gained national attention and United Airlines immediately took responsibility. We remain in contact with the family to express our condolences and offer support. "We provided compensation to all customers on board for the diversion".
