Aviation's Believe It or Not

According to Eric Lipp, Executive Director of Open Doors Organization, a man had a miniature horse that he took on an airline for “emotional support.”

Believe It Or Not!

Y’all, this one is hard to believe. 

We all know that the guvmint, in all of its brilliance, has declared that a disabled person may carry a pet on flights if said pet is a service animal. I thought that was for guide dogs for the blind. Then I met a big, strong man who looked like Hulk Hogan riding a motorcycle with a tiny dog in a pouch on his chest. Found out the man has epilepsy, and the dog would yap like all get out a couple of minutes or so before an epileptic seizure. Now that’s wonderful.

But folks, this whole thing is getting out of hand, now.

According to Eric Lipp, Executive Director of Open Doors Organization, a man had a miniature horse that he took on an airline for “emotional support.” The horse didn’t fit in the back, so the airline moved man and horse to first class.

The horse “…pooped all over and the other first-class travelers weren’t happy.”

Well, who can blame them? If I had paid for first class and a horse “pooped all over” I would have been madder’n hell.

Come on, now—emotional support?

This is just one more example of a guvmint gone nuts and people taking advantage of it.

OTOH, I do have a pet boa constrictor that helps me get through the day. You reckon I oughta take him on the plane on my next trip?
