WHERE IS JACK? INC. has created a spreadsheet that serves as a database for of all Pet Air Incidents that the DOT has reported since the current rule went into effect in May 2005. We update this spreadsheet every month with the latest incidents. (Particular thanks to Bonnie Wagner-Westbrook for her dedication in creating and updating this inventory!)
Below please find the latest update to our spreadsheet (through incidents reported in February 2013) , which now details 354 cases of animals being lost, injured or killed while in the care of the airlines during domestic (U.S.) travel. This only includes animals who were lost, injured or killed while traveling with their guardian – meaning no incidents involving an animal who was lost, injured or killed while traveling for breeding or for commercial sale was recorded.
Please feel free to review and share this information widely. If using this information for commercial purposes, please give credit to WHERE IS JACK? INC.
