State Senator Marisol Alcantara introduced the new bill, which has won the support of animal rights advocates. "Every night I cry because it feels really empty without him in the house".

The flight attendant in the United Airlines plane bound for NY from Houston said she did not realize that there was a pet in the carrier when she shoved it into the overhead bin. United has been under fire lately for its handling of pets.

"I feel devastated", the puppy's owner, Sophia Ceballos, said tearfully Sunday.

This is the third incident involving dogs on United flights this week. The flight attendant allegedly did not hear or understand the family when they said the dog was in the carrier.

Data from the US Department of Transportation shows that three times as many animals died on United flights past year than on all the other US carriers put together. The airline accepted responsibility for the tragedy.

United has had the highest rate of pet deaths of any U.S. airline for the past three years.
