DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - United Airlines says it is saddened by the death of a giant rabbit after a flight from London to Chicago and is reviewing a lawsuit filed by the animal's owners.
The lawsuit alleges United was negligent in the death of a rabbit named Simon. In response, United released a statement saying the company is "saddened by Simon's death in April" and that the airline is "currently reviewing" the complaint.
A group of Iowa executives filed the lawsuit seeking unspecified damages to cover the costs of the rabbit and punitive damages.
A United spokesman didn't immediately respond to a request for comment
