A dog died on a Unite Airlines flight Monday after a flight attendant forced a passenger to put the pet in an overhead bin. According to June Lara, the passenger, a mother and two daughters were boarding a flight with a black French bulldog when a flight attendant said the dog would need to be in the overhead bin. "They assured the safety of the family's pet, so, wearily, the mother agreed".

"Tonight I was on a plane where I witnessed a @united flight attendant instruct a passenger to place her dog carrier (with dog) in the overhead compartment".

The dog barked on and off for about 30 minutes of the flight, she said, but then fell silent.

By the end of the flight, the dog was dead.
