United Airlines Could Be Forced To Pay More Than $25,000 For Incident With Dead Dog – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Tuesday, a United Airlines flight attendant ordered a passenger to put her 10-month-old dog, who was in a TSA-approved pet carrier, in the overhead bin during a flight from Houston to New York.

In fact, the airline has been hit with widespread controversy in recent months due to its excessive violence toward a doctor.
