Emotional support dogs kicked off plane – in the news this week

Two French Bulldogs and their owners have been removed from a plane after the cross pooches refused to stop barking.

The plane was all set for take-off from Gatwick when the Bulldogs took a disliking to other passengers and started relentlessly barking. The dogs were fully verified support animals – meaning they were supposedly trained to sit on an anxious flyer’s lap to keep them calm during the flight.

The crew doubted they were support animals at all, questioning whether the owners were trying to get the pups across the pond on the cheap. The captain made the decision to boot the disgruntled dogs and their owners off the flight to save the dogs from undue stress and the rest of the passengers a nine-hour flight from hell.
