Default Service Dog Mauls Passengers Face On Delta Flight

A dog attack that didn't involve a pit bull.... imagine that? It was a chocolate lab/pointer mix. A service dog nonetheless. Those labs and pointers should all be put down! Maybe breed specific legislation!

If this story turns out to be true, I am going to guess there is more to story. Like the "victim" deserved it, i.e. was harassing the dog or the owner a woman or child nearby. Everybody knows only Pitbulls snap and attack unprovoked.

I love the leading headline "service dog attacks", then clarifies as emotional support dog... I'm not sure how journalists write anymore, I'm just a humble stockbroker and know they're not the same.

all I know is if I paid for a seat and there was a 50lb dog sitting in the lap of the person next to me, they would need to call Swat in to hold me back.

F'ing ridiculous. If the Vet needed the dog so as not to shit himself for whatever reason, drive........

this country is so infatuated with stuffing others issues down everyone else's throat and not giving two shats about it.

My emotional support miniature pony stepped on some guys foot, last flight I was on. They need to make the aisles wider to support these service animals.

This is not a "service dog" it is an "emotional support" animal which has absolutely no training requirements.

hopefully they sue the owner, the doctor that prescribed this nonsense, the "agency" that sold the owner the fake vest and "papers" and everyone except the airline that is stuck in the middle of this nonsense

unfortunately it will probably be the exact opposite, but at least if they sue the airline hopefully the airlines will finally step up and try and end this nonsense

and as others have said if you need a pet to fly then you do not belong on a plane

Well that sucks, I'm sure he didn't pick the dog out but something of that size should be crated either way that's nuts

Chocolate lab pointer mix sounds suspicious , possible was a rescue dog of unidentified breeds. Anything black they call a lab mix. I fostered a dog for an animal shelter until a home was found for it. It was advertised as a Lab and Boxer mix and for the he'll of it we had the DNA done for $60 through amazon. Turned out it was 75% Pitt and the rest was Chow. Cool dog though i still visit it, it's out in the country on 600 acres a good guard dog and no kids around.

I had an encounter with a dog on a plane a few years back. I'll try to do the Cliff Notes version.

I had just boarded a flight a few years ago and the two seats next to me were empty. I thought that I had it made but just as they were about to close the door, a man and a Shepherd boarded the plane. The stewardess walked them back and seated them next to me. I thought that dogs were supposed to ride in the cargo hold but I didn't say anything right then.

As we were taxiing I asked the guy about his dog and how he got to ride in the plane. He told me that it wasn't just a dog but a special police dog. The dog seemed kinda cool and I am a dog person so I really didn't care.

Once we got in flight I asked him what made his Shepherd so special. He told me "Watch this". He gave the dog a command that I didn't understand but the dog left his seat and started walking around the plane. He finally came back and sat back in his seat. He tapped the handler's wrist with some sort of special code that resembled morse code. I asked the guy what that meant. He told me "The dog found a lady in 23C that has marijuana and she will be arrested when she gets off the plane"

So, we sat there for while longer with all three of us eating the peanuts and having a drink and I asked him if he would get him to do that again. He sent the dog off and again, he returned to his seat and tapped the handler on the arm. I asked what he said. He told me "The guy in 19B has cocaine and he will be arrested when he gets off the plane".

So, we are all three sitting there eating more snacks and throwing down a couple drinks and I asked if he will get his dog to do his thing one more time. He sends him off again and when the Shepherd gets back he jumps up in the seat and starts shitting all over everything. I asked him what the hell was going on. His reply.

"He found a bomb".

I would love to know how it decided pit when it isn't a singular breed that makes up 'pit bull' category.

I'm not sure there are 'fake' vests and papers because I'm not sure there are real ones. I didn't think there was a singular issuing party or governance for service dogs. That it is a kind of loophole right now, or maybe void is a better term, being abused by plenty.

Agreed! People need to get this straight.

A service dog is bred for temperament and trained for up to two years. An ESA is nothing more than a bunch of crap excuse to take your mutt into stores, restaurants, and on airplanes.
