Dogs in planes = health issues

Thinking of flying with your pooch? Depends upon the breed, apparently, according to nice FOI work by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

More than 20 animals died or were injured or lost on Delta Air Lines flights last year, a number that shows the dangers pets can face when they take to the skies.

The Delta incidents, including those on Delta Connection regional flights,  involved several bulldogs and pugs that died during transit, along with other types of dogs  and animals that ran into trouble during their travels. According to Delta reports to the U.S. Department of Transportation for last year through November, other animals that died included a Jack Russell terrier, a pit bull terrier, a Boston terrier, a Dogue de Bordeaux, a Labrador retriever and a bird.
