TMZ- United Airlines is catching more flak this week after a rabbit set to become the world’s biggest bunny died on-board one of its flights.
The 3-foot bunny named Simon reportedly died Monday night on a United flight from Heathrow to O’Hare — yes, really.
The breeder, Annette Edwards, says Simon was healthy before boarding … but was found dead in the plane’s cargo hold upon landing. It was reportedly on its way to a new celeb owner in the States.
The rabbits cost around $6,400 to raise, and Edwards sells them for $640 a pop. Simon, who was 10 months old, was expected to surpass his 4-foot, 4-inch dad … and snag the record for world’s biggest.
United — which is already dealing with a PR nightmare — reportedly said it was saddened to hear this news and that it’s trying to determine why Simon died.
What an omen for the oncoming nightmare it is working with United Airlines. Airplanes in general have been taking L and L since one of them just vanished over open water. Ever since then planes have just never recovered. More go missing or get shot down with 0 survivors in sight. Now your dragging bodies out of the cargo hold, human or animal, and just waiting for lawyers to throw law suits at you. Terrible times, but this one kinda takes the cake no? Right in the middle of spring you kill of an animal that’s a symbol of fertility and life. And none the less a giant one. Like you didn’t kill a small symbol of life and comfort, you killed a world record symbol. Dark times ahead for United for sure now…..
…..Id still fly them if they’re cheap enough.
