Three-foot Simon, destined to be the world’s biggest bunny, died in the cargo section of a Boeing 767 after flying out of Heathrow to a new celebrity owner in the US.

Breeder Annette Edwards said: “Simon had a vet’s check-up three hours before the flight and was fit as a fiddle.

“Something very strange has happened and I want to know what.

“I’ve sent rabbits all around the world and nothing like this has happened before.”

United’s reputation is at rock bottom after film of a doctor being dragged from a jet went viral.

Edwards, 65, said 3 foot Simon, expected to grow to be the world’s biggest rabbit, and was healthy when placed in the cargo hold.
