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.
