LONDON (AP) — United Airways is investigating a report that a big rabbit died on one among its trans-Atlantic flights.
Distraught breeder Annette Edwards from Worcestershire in central England informed The Related Press by telephone Wednesday that Simon, a ten-month-previous, three-foot-lengthy continental rabbit, had a vet examine shortly earlier than touring from London’s Heathrow Airport to Chicago’s O’Hare Airport.
She stated Simon had been bought by a star whom she didn’t determine.
“Simon had his vet examine simply earlier than getting on the aircraft,” she stated. “He was match as a fiddle.”
The airline stated in a press release that it was “saddened” by the information and had been in touch with Edwards and provided help.
The corporate is coping with public relations points after a passenger who wouldn’t hand over his seat was dragged forcibly from a aircraft in Chicago three weeks in the past.
