United flight 3996 from Newark to St. Louis was diverted to Akron, Ohio to drop off the pet. 10-month old Kokito the French bull dog was on his way to La Guardia from Houston when Sophia Robeldo said the flight attendant made her place him in the overhead bin. United Airlines confirmed the incident to the news station, which did not identify the type of animal or indicate if the pet was loaded into cargo or brought into the main cabin.
