The eight-year-old Pomeranian named Alejandro was found dead in its cage in the cargo hold. Michael Dellegrazie, the owner, said the dog was alive when the flight from Phoenix, Ariz., landed at the airport around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday for a scheduled layover. "There was a stop in Detroit at 6 a.m. Alejandro was checked on".
The Pomeranian, called Alejandro, was found dead Wednesday morning in its carrier in a cargo facility at the airport, southwest of Detroit in Romulus. Delta is conducting a thorough review of the situation and has been working directly with Alejandro's family to support them however we can.
'As part of that review, we want to find out more about why this may have occurred to ensure it doesn't happen again and we have offered to have Alejandro evaluated by a veterinarian to learn more'.
"When he landed here in MI, he was alive at 6:30 a.m., and then at 8:20, he wasn't moving and it just doesn't make any sense to me", said Alejandro's owner Michael Dellagrazie, according to WDIV.
The owner blames Delta for the death.
Yet another dog has been found dead on an airplane, and the devastated family wants answers.
"To say they are distraught would be a gross understatement", the family's attorney, Evan Oshan, told WXYZ.
The Delta spokesperson also told Newsweek that the airline offered the couple several times to perform an independent necropsy on Alejandro, but was turned down. That's exactly what happened, and somebody has to be responsible for it.
"We lost a family member", Dellegrazie said. "We assume full responsibility for this tragedy and express our deepest condolences to the family and are committed to supporting them".
