The idea that people should be able to take their emotional support animals – otherwise known to normal people as pets – anywhere they damn well like was always an odd one. Where there’s a distinct physical necessity then sure, why not, guide dogs for the blind etc. But an emotional support horse on a plane? No, don’t laugh, someone tried it.
Then we also get stories like this:
A man who was allegedly attacked by an emotional support dog on a Delta Airlines flight has filed a lawsuit against the airline and the owner of the animal.
