A cute, little pug named "J" boarded a Delta flight in Moscow, Russia alive and healthy, but arrived in New York dead.
His owner said:
"I saw him in Moscow. He was fine. Then, he gets off the plane, his body's like a popsicle.
On the plane itself, it was so cold that the passengers would ask for second blankets," said Julia. "I would ask the flight attendants, 'We have a dog there, and it is so cold for people, will he be okay?'"
They believe he froze to death during the 11 hour trip.
"He's part of our family. I'm heartbroken, devastated, destroyed. They killed our dog."
Delta has only said they've had "challenges" safely transporting pets. They released a statement that said:
"With those past challenges, we take the transport of pets very seriously and safely transport many hundreds of pets every year. Again, we regret this episode and will work with the customer to make it right."
Unless they can go back in time and undo what they did, we don't see how they could ever make this "right."
Our thoughts are with his grieving family.
