United Airlines has announced it will issue special bag tags for animal carriers and prosecutors have launched an investigation to determine if criminal charges are warranted following the death of a French bulldog puppy that was forced into an overhead bin on a United flight.

A statement from prosecutors said they won't decide if criminal charges are warranted until the investigation is completed.

The Associated Press sent an email seeing comment Thursday on the criminal investigation to an airline spokesman.

Last year, 18 animals, mostly dogs, died while being transported on United — three-fourths of all animal deaths on U.S. carriers, according to the Department of Transportation. Those figures represent animals that die in cargo holds.

United, which promotes its pet-shipping program called PetSafe, carries more animals than any other airline, but its animal-death rate is also the highest in the industry. Alaska Airlines, which carries only 17 percent fewer animals, had just two deaths last year.

Want to visit a 747 boneyard? How many United miles do you have ... ? .
United is auctioning off a chance to travel to an aviation scrapyard for a final toast onboard its last 747, which is awaiting “disassembly” there. United flew its last passenger flight on the 747 in November, retiring the model with a splashy farewell flight from San Francisco to Honolulu. For United’s MileagePlus members who want one last look at the jet – affectionately nicknamed the “Queen of the Skies” in aviation circles – there's now the opportunity to bid for that experience, which includes a trip for two to Memphis from June 1 through June 3.
