Senator blasts United after dog dies in overhead bin, another sent to Japan
A 10-year-old German shepherd Irgo was supposed to be on a flight from Oregon to Kansas City, but when owner Kara Swindle arrived in Missouri, United Airlines gave her a Great Dane instead. The dogs got switched, and Irgo was sent to Japan. "At this point all I can do is be hopeful that my dog is going to be OK," said owner Kara Swindle. "I've cried too much."
