United Airlines had its third pet-related mishap in a week on Thursday, following a puppy that died in an overhead bin and another dog that was accidentally sent to Japan. The Washington Post reports that during a flight from Newark, New Jersey, to St Louis, Missouri, flight attendants realized there was a dog in the hold that didn't belong there. The animal was supposed to be on a flight to Akron, Ohio. At least 33 passengers were on the flight that was then diverted to Akron to drop the animal off. United said the passengers received an undisclosed amount of compensation for the diversion. The airline also noted that it "chose the fastest option to reunite the dog with his family."
