The dog, a black French bulldog that was traveling in a pet carrier, was placed in the compartment shortly before United Flight 1284 left Houston for NY around 6 p.m. Monday, said Maggie Gremminger, 30, who was seated behind the pet owner.

Gremminger said on Twitter she wants to find out the name of the dog's owners so she can help them. "However, the flight attendants of flight UA1284 felt that the innocent animal was better off crammed inside the overhead container without air and water", another passenger, June Lara, wrote on Facebook. This poor family paid $125 for their pet to be murdered in front of them. After the flight attendant asked her to move it above, the woman adamantly refused, communicating her dog was in the bag.

But Gremminger said the flight attendant, whose name she did not know, appeared distraught after the flight in NY when she learned that the dog had died.

"The flight attendant told the passenger that her bag was blocking part of the aisle", passenger Maggie Gremminger told People.

Gremminer explained that the dog barked twice during the 30 minutes after take off, then fell silent.
