Weather temperature at SJC was 69F. DL1284 arrived into SLC on-time and the temperature was approximately 87F with partly cloudy skies. Both animals were unloaded and delivered to the warehouse for retrieval by their owner. While in the warehouse, agents observed blood at the back of the kennel.

Once the owner arrived to the warehouse, she removed Hubbell from his kennel and advised the blood was coming from his front left paw. The owner determined Hubbell was fine and stated he was a “hyper” dog, who was a first time flyer. Hubbell and JJ were released to their owner.
