No More Emotional Support Peacocks On Planes

The days of bringing your emotional support cat, pig, or even a miniature horse on a plane may soon be coming to an end. The federal government enacts a new rule restricting the types of service animals allowed on commercial airline flights, allowing only dogs that meet specific training criteria. The new Department of Transportation rule is in response to a growing backlash in recent years to airline passengers trying to bring all kinds of wild and outlandish pets onto planes, including the woman who wanted to get an "emotional support" peacock on board a United Airlines flight in 2018, and the "comfort" turkey that was actually allowed to fly on Delta Airlines back in 2016.
