Investigate Airline Accused Of Causing Excessive Animal Deaths

Target: Elaine L. Chao, United States Secretary of Transportation

Goal: Investigate major airline accused of causing majority of animal deaths on U.S. flights.

According to reports and statistics, more animals have died or come to harm on United Airlines flights than with any other major airline in the United States. While traveling with pets is definitely risky, within the past several years United has seen more animals injured or dead on their flights, topping off the list at one point with 14 deaths in 2015. Simon the giant bunny is a noteworthy death by the hands of United, and he is allegedly only one of many.

The Humane Society has warned against air travel with animals due to most being stored in the cargo and exposed to extreme temperatures, poor ventilation and rough handling. It is unknown whether these animals have died due to negligence on the part of the airline or by accidents or unrelated causes, but the numbers are not good. Air travel may not be ideal, but it should be safe for all passengers, animals included.

We must call for a thorough investigation of the airline and their practices involving animal passengers to ensure that the truth is found and that conditions will be improved to prevent future animal deaths. Sign this petition to help protect future animal passengers on United Airlines flights.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Secretary Chao,

Reports and statistics are showing that more animals have died on United Airlines flights than on any other U.S. airline, the most recent being Simon the giant bunny whose death made major news. The exact cause has yet to be determined, be it negligence on the part of the airline or purely accidental, but animals need to be protected on flights. It is risky enough to travel with animals due to the extreme temperatures and poor ventilation in the cargo storage.

You must thoroughly investigate United Airlines and their protocol when it comes to animal passengers. Too many deaths have already occurred, and we must take as many steps as possible to prevent future tragedies. There is only so much handlers and owners can do. It is up to the airline to keep all passengers safe. Investigate United Airlines, and if necessary, demand that they improve their animal safety protocol.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  3. This is heartbreaking, appalling and inexcusable. There should be a proper investigation of United.
    The conditions for animals on the planes must be extremely horrible if they are dying!! Let all the truth come out!! And put a STOP to United Airline’s cruel treatment of animals.

    DEFINITELY THIS SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED AND CONDITIONS AND MONITORS IN PLACE AND AIRLINES FINED HIGH FOR ANY NEGLECT OR ABUSE ON THEIR PART….CAMERAS SHOULD BE SET UP WHERE THE PETS ARE KEPT AND THROUGH ALL THE HANDLING AREA. I FIND IT VERY UNACCEPTABLE THAT ANIMALS HAVE TO BE PUT WITH THE LUGGAGE IN THE FIRST PLACE! I WOULD NOT MIND SHARING MY AIRPLANE SPACE WITH AN ANIMAL….AFTER ALL I HAVE TOLERATED SCREAMING KIDS BEFORE AND I MADE IT THROUGH THE FIGHT OK!!!!
