Being an animal advocate I can’t pass by the hot topic right now concerning a precious dog who lost his life on an airplane. This little 10 month old puppy’s life was lost tragically. A flight attendant forced passengers to put their dog in the over head bin. If you haven’t heard about this, the video below will explain.
There are all kinds of heated discussions about this on social media. Some blame the dog’s mom (hate the word “owner”), other’s blame the flight attendant and some blame both.
I look into those eyes and my heart is broken.
To me it seems the flight attendant wasn’t looking at this dog as a living, feeling being. She treated him as an object.
One big question being asked, should the flight attendant be fired? What do you think?
Note: I would like to take this time to share this great article I came across: Scholarly Support for Nonhuman Rights. I thought it was fitting. I think this is great but I have always known…animals are not and never have been “property” (and in this puppy’s case “a piece of luggage”).
