Dog advocate, Lisa Vanderpump, is in an uproar over a tragic incident involving a flight attendant murdering a puppy during a flight.

According to Fox News, for more than three hours, a passenger’s dog was inside an overhead bin on United Airlines Flight 1284 from Houston to New York after a flight attendant told the passenger to put it there.

The incident has made headlines across the globe and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is sounding off on Twitter, “Shame on #united airlines what a disgrace,poor little guy suffocated. Fire the b*tch please,” Vanderpump wrote.

As a passionate dog lover and a person who has been an adamant supporter of four legged friends, Vanderpump shared data on airplane cabin altitude.

When the plane landed at LaGuardia Airport Monday night, the dog was deceased.

Airline officials have spoken out and admit it was a mistake. In a statement, United called the dog’s death a “tragic accident.” 

“We assume full responsibility for this tragedy and express our deepest condolences to the family and are committed to supporting them,” the airline said in reply Tuesday to CNN’s request for comment about reports of the dog’s death. “We are thoroughly investigating what occurred to prevent this from ever happening again.”

Spokeswoman Maggie Schmerin said United has been in contact with the passenger who owned the dog and offered to pay for a necropsy, an autopsy for animals.

United allows pets in the cabin when they are transported in kennels that can fit under the seat. Some types of animals are prohibited from flying on any flight. Schmerin said this animal was not on that list.
