United Airlines seems to be unable to stay out of the public’s eye for too long without criticism.

Now, a woman of the United Kingdom, is calling for an investigation after her bunny rabbit died while being transported to its new owner.

Annette Edwards from Stoulton in Worcester, said that she sold her oversized bunny to a celebrity client in the United States.

She hired a veterinarian to check on the animal and to look after it until it was placed onto the airplane in Heathrow Airport.

The bunny named Simon, is ten months old and is 3 feet long. The rabbit was on track to outgrow the world’s biggest rabbit, which is its father named Darius.

Darius is 4 feet and 4 inches long.

Edwards, 65, said that the bunny was healthy and ready to make the trip to Chicago O’Hare International Airport in the United States, when it was placed in the cargo hold.

However, when it arrived, Simon was found dead. The bunny was discovered dead at the Chicago O’Hare International Airport the same place where a doctor was famously violently dragged off from the United Airlines plane.

Edwards said that her celebrity client was also upset when he learned that the animal died on the airplane.

“Something very strange has happened and I want to know what. I have sent rabbits all around the world and nothing like this has happened before,” Edwards said.
