Woman Flushes Emotional Support Hamster In Airport Toilet
Last week, we shared the story about the woman who was not allowed to carry her emotional support peacock on a flight with her. The bird is normally perched on her shoulder but was way to large to have on board a plane. Looks like this week's pet story has an even more upsetting ending for one person.
According to the story filed by FoxNews.com:
...when the student arrived at the airport she said the airline refused to let Pebbles on the plane. Aldecosea said she did not have many options since her family was in Florida and her friends were hours away. The student claimed a Spirit employee suggested she either flush Pebbles down the toilet or let the animal free.
I understand that flying can be tough and cause panic and anxiety and in some cases, can be almost paralyzing. However, what is the line when it comes to emotional support? It has been an ongoing issue over the last few weeks. Air travel is the fastest and statistically the safest way to get from point a to point b. However, it may be time for those with legitimate issues to reconsider their plans.
