United Airlines made headlines on Wednesday after a giant bunny died in one of its pet-holding facilities after flying with the airline from London to Chicago. But this isn’t the first time the airline has come under fire for how it handles pets in transit. According to data provided by the Department of Transportation, United had more “pet incidences,” which refers to injuries, deaths, and losses, than any other major airline in 2016. There have been 14 injuries and 9 deaths. Delta, which ranks second for pet incidences, is responsible for 5 deaths and 5 injuries. To be fair, United has transported more pets (109,149) compared to Delta (81,070).
