United says it's 'saddened' by rabbit's death

The owners of a giant rabbit that died in April after a United Airlines flight from London filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the company, accusing the airline of cremating the animal's remains to destroy evidence about what killed it.

When Cook threatened legal action in May, Hobart said United had reached "a satisfactory resolution" with the rabbit's breeder, Annette Edwards, in Worcestershire in the United Kingdom. But the quest for justice over his inexplicable demise wasn't finished.

A group of Iowa executives filed the lawsuit seeking unspecified damages to cover the costs of the rabbit and punitive damages.

The lawsuit says United was negligent in Simon's care and transportation and then improperly cremated him.

Simon was the son of what media has described as the "world's largest rabbit".

At the time، an attorney for the owners said it was possible that the giant rabbit died after being placed in a freezer for 16 hours on landing، an assertion the airline has denied. "I've sent rabbits all around the world and nothing like this has happened before".

She did not allow United to perform a necropsy on the rabbit.

The suit does not explain how the rabbit died but puts forth several possibilities, including that it was exposed to low temperatures in the cargo compartment or that dry ice might have been left in the same compartment as the animal.

"We are saddened to hear this news". "We look forward to implementing the improvements we have announced, which will put our customers at the center of everything we do". "We are reviewing this matter".

A United spokesman didn't immediately respond to a request for comment about the lawsuit. The rabbit had sat in the cargo section of a Boeing 767 at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, expecting to board a connecting flight to Kansas City and where his new owners planned to retrieve him. "We have received this complaint and are now reviewing it".

Guy Cook, the attorney for the three men, said Simon was purchased with the hopes of selling merchandise and displaying him during the Iowa State Fair.

Additionally, they allege that United failed to comply with federal reporting rules, by not filing a narrative description of the Simon incident within the required window of time. "None of them stand to benefit financially from the resolution".
