United Airlines apologized on Wednesday to the owners of dog who died in an aircraft cargo hold during a flight from Houston to San Francisco, the latest death of an animal under the airline's care. ABC News reported that the Rasmussen family's 5-year-old King Charles Spaniel Lulu was aboard the United plane on Sunday when it was delayed on the tarmac for two hours before taking off. The family said the dog died in the cargo hold and had been cleared to fly by a veterinarian days before the flight. U.S. Department of Transportation data show that United had nine of the 26 deaths of animals reported last year during air transport, more than any other airline.
