Flight attendant requires stitches after being bit by emotional support animal

Recommended Posts

Story via CNN:

https://www.cnn.com/travel/article/american-airlines-attendant-bitten-emotional-support-animal-trnd/index.html


Emotional support animals are getting out of control, but I think the key WTF for me is this key excerpt:

American Airlines last updated its emotional-support animal policy in March. For service animals, the airline permits dogs, cats and miniature horses. Emotional-support animals must be dogs or cats. 

Has anyone seen a miniature horse used as a service animal?

She's going to need her own emotional support animal. . . maybe something like a Rottweiler to bring with her on the plane!

When your child is allergic to most dogs and cats, the emotional support animals are extremely annoying.

Sitting next to someone with a support cat as I speak. Taxiing into the terminal.

Didn’t bite one person.

My support porcupine would never do that. He’s kind of touchy, but he won’t bite.

as @Cjw_55106 said, they are just annoying in general. The whole concept is ridiculous, as if it is some actual medical thing. There is basically no data showing it is a legit thing. The only real results are probably because people travel with their pets and aren't concerned that they are stuck in some kennel and suffered no financial hardship by doing so.

On United, you can bring regular pets on board. Doesn’t need to be a service or emotional support animal. 

United allows domesticated cats, dogs, rabbits and household birds (excluding cockatoos) to travel accompanied in the aircraft cabin on most flights within the U.S.

A plane with a complement of gregarious, mellow dogs would be really, really cool.  I'd seriously pay extra.

I have a list of awesome startup ideas and this is one of them. 

New airline.  Everyone who books a flight gets paired with a dog.  You get a discount but the catch is you're required to play with the dog and take it to the pet relief area at the back of the plane when necessary, give it treats, etc. etc..  It's great for the passengers because dogs are freakin' awesome and nobody would be stressed and its great for the dogs because it essentially gives a home to rescue dogs.  What could go wrong.  

Edit: I forgot, first class gets puppies.

On Delta, it’s always been a way for a pet owner to bring their animal on board without stowing them. Until I think a year or two ago where they now require a doctors notice that it is indeed a legitimate emotional support animal.

At the very least it makes the passenger go out of their way and likely sink money into the effort.

They must have done something to be excluded. People don't just ban a certain type of bird without good cause.

Would be more than happy to fly with a bunch of Labrador Retrievers than most grumpy passengers I encounter.

Seeing-eye miniature horses are a real thing, and they look ridiculously cute in their sneakers meant to protect their hooves from the pavement.

I'd sit next to one of those on a plane. that'd be neat. 

Siri, how many times a day does a miniature horse poop?

The average horse poops about 10-12 times per day.

The good news is they’re miniature poops.

They have to stay inside their kennel and it costs 125 each way. 

And it has to be small enough to fit under the seat.

I think there may also be a maximum number of pets per flight.

I know I am an old cranky man and will likely get flamed for this but IMO the "emotional support" excuse for service animals is BS.   If you are so emotionally fragile that you need a dog or horse to go out to dinner or ride an airplane maybe you should stay home.

Don't confuse emotional support animals with service animals.  They are very different.  Service animals are highly trained.

Anyone against having that mini-horse on a plane is a monster. Cuddles 😍
