Pet Safety A Concern After Fatal United Airlines Flights

(PET SAFETY/ANIMAL TRAVEL) After a series of incidents involving animal deaths on United Airlines flights, two senators, John Kennedy of Louisiana, and Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada, have introduced the Welfare of Our Furry Friends Act (or the "WOOFF Act"), which would ban airlines from storing animals in overhead compartments. The bipartisan bill comes in response to the recent death of a French Bulldog puppy named Kokito, who was forced to be placed in an overhead storage bin by a United Airlines flight attendant. Congressmen Steve Cohen of Tennessee and Dan Donovan of New York are also seeking justice for Kokito after proposing a similar measure called the Planes Ensuring Total Safety Act (or the "PETS Act"). "It is astonishing that we have to pass a law to stop this from happening, it should be common sense," Congressman Steve Cohen said in a tweet. Putting animals in the overhead compartment was already against United’s policies, but the airline plans to start issuing brightly colored bag tags to customers traveling with in-cabin pets to prevent future animal deaths. Read on to learn more about how airlines and legislators are working to ensure pet safety during air travel. -- Global Animal
