Janet Sinclair owner of a greyhound named Sedona claims that her pet suffered a full heat stroke after she got out of a United Airlines flight from San Diego to Boston. She said that United Airlines agreed to pay for the hospital bills only if she she signed a non-disclosure agreement.
She also said that the dog's crate was filled with urine, feces, and blood.
Janet Sinclair was moving from San Diego to Boston lasy July and opted to have the “PetSafe” program of the airline company. “PetSafe” program guarantee that pets will not be exposed to temperatures greater than 85 degrees for more than 45 minutes.
On the contrary, when she reached Boston she said that Sedona was dying.
"Sedona’s entire crate was filled with blood, feces, urine. Sedona was in full heat stroke. All of the blankets were filled with blood. She was urinating and defecating blood. She was dying, literally, right in front of me."
She had to pay extra for the animals to stop in Houston to take a break from flying in an air-conditioned vehicle. But, when she looked outside her airplane window at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, she saw Sedona’s supposed personal handler kicking the dog’s crate.
The employee was seen violently shoving the dog and her other pet Alika which is a cat under the plane’s wing. The weather in Houston that day was as high as 94 degrees.
