Last week another lesser known United scandal started, when a giant rabbit died while in the care of the airline.
The bunny inexplicably died in the middle of a flight from London to O'Hare Airport in Chicago.
Breeder Annette Edwards says United cremated her bunny without her permission so she would never know the truth about how it died:
"The whole thing stinks of a cover-up. I had been asking United over and over again for his body so that I can have him examined here in Britain but they never got back to me. All I want to know is how he died."
Edwards is a rabbit breeder from the United Kingdom. She was sending the Continental Giant rabbit named Simon to a new owner in America.
A source told The Sun that careless Chicago airport workers killed Simon by accidentally leaving him in a freezer overnight.
United says that claim is totally false:
“The assertion that Simon died in a freezer is completely false. Simon was cared for at the PetSafe kennel facility which is kept at room temperature (on average 70°F). He arrived at Chicago O’Hare airport in apparent good condition at 10:25 am (local time). He was seen by a representative of the kennel facility moving about within his crate about 11:00am. Shortly thereafter, a kennel representative noticed Simon was motionless and determined that he passed away.”
