Can't get good help anymore! #idiots
Sounds like someone is going to get Stung on this one! - All jokes aside, there has been more than one animal/pet left out in the heat that died of a Heat Stroke.... There is no acceptable excuse for these actions.
this is really sad...honey bees are a VITAL part of the eco system and polllination..someone at delta needs to be held accoutable and severely fined or fired!
This is a terrible loss the agricultural, bees die, we die... Read about it.. the beekeeper should be well compensated.
Delta will probably give them a voucher for a future flight. Oh, wait ........
I can't think of a single airline that doesn't treat animals like baggage. Sorry to hear that. Just negligent employees. I hope she gets compensated for the loss well and next time, pick a different carrier.
