A dog that made a trip aboard an Air France jetliner that took off in Amsterdam ended up dead in L.A.
Air France sources tell TMZ … the dog, which looks like a husky, was found dead Tuesday afternoon in the cargo hold.
One Air France employee with knowledge of the incident claims … the dog was incorrectly loaded in the cargo hold and lost oxygen during the transatlantic flight. According to flight trackers, the flight time was 10 hours, 45 minutes.
We’re told the dog’s owner picked up her dead pet at Air France’s LAX warehouse … and as you can imagine, she was devastated.
We’ve seen pictures of the dead dog … but the images are too disturbing to share.
As we’ve reported … dead dogs on commercial flights are becoming all too common, and some deaths end up triggering criminal investigations.
We’ve reached out to Air France for comment … so far, no word back.
