Dog found dead on Delta flight

Dog found dead on Delta flight

The 8-year-old dog was found dead in his carrier last Wednesday at a cargo facility at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

Delta spokeswoman Lisa Hellerstedt told CNN there was "vomit and fluids" in the dog's cage.

Alejandro's owner has revealed that a bloody blanket was discovered among his dog's belongings and that the carrier was washed - possibly eliminating evidence.

"When he landed here in MI, he was alive at 6.30am and then at 8.20am, he wasn't moving and it just doesn't make any sense to me", owner Michael Dellagrazie told WDIV-TV.

"We lost a family member", said Michael Dellagrazie of Staten Island, New York.

The cause of death is still unknown, and Delta told TMZ it is investigating the case. "There was a stop in Detroit at 6 a.m. Alejandro was checked on".

Delta released a statement saying they are conducting a thorough review of the incident. In addition, the source said that any moisture is likely the result of condensation from the ice used to keep Alejandro cool during the two and half days it took the owner to pick up the corpse. "That's all I can think of", Dellegrazie said. We had a dead family member.

"I couldn't figure out why they were all wet".

As the family awaits the results of Alejandro's necropsy, Dellegrazie is calling on the Federal Bureau of Investigation to get involved and make sure that animals are "treated like they're passengers". "We want to know what happened to our dog".

Dellegrazie told the media that he found blood stains on his dog's blanket after he flew to Detroit in an unsuccessful attempt to claim the body. Airline representatives said they are working with Alejandro's owners and offered them a free necropsy to determine the cause of Alejandro's death.

Delta, in a statement to ABC News, said it's offered to have the dog evaluated by a veterinarian and officials are looking into what happened.

In the same year, a total of 57,479 pets traveled on Delta Airlines. "That's exactly what happened, and someone has to be responsible for it", Dellegrazie said.

The lawyer represented the owners of Kokito, the French bulldog who was killed on a United Airlines flight in March. One of the deceased pets included a kitten that died during a layover in Minneapolis during a trip from Indianapolis to Bozeman, Montana.
