Emotional Support Sheep Baaanned

Emotional Support Sheep banned from flying
Do you think they will notice?

I know, it sucks you can’t take Baaabara with you to an All Inclusive Resort.

Don’t feel bad, cruises are off limits too.

This whole thing started with Dexter the peacock…..who ruined it for your Sugar Glider.

Being on the ‘banned’ list is not just for terrorists anymore.

Here is AA’s list of banned passengers. All airlines are now revisiting their policy so paw carefully.

In a nutshell: If you crave emotional support, airlines are requiring a minimum of 48 hours notice that the support animal will be flying – along with proper documentation to allow the airline to contact the passenger’s mental health professional for confirmation. Hell, there is a whole new profession to jump into…..

American Airlines’ list of prohibited animals includes:

  • Amphibians
  • Ferrets
  • Goats
  • Hedgehogs
  • Insects
  • Reptiles
  • Rodents
  • Snakes
  • Spiders
  • Sugar Gliders
  • Non-household birds (farm poultry, waterfowl, game birds and birds of prey)
  • Animals with tusks, horns or hooves (excluding miniature horses properly trained as service animals)
  • Any animal that is unclean or has an odor.

How am I going to break this to my Emotional Support beaver?
