I think emotional support animals can serve a real, genuine, valuable purpose in some cases. This does not strike me as one of those cases.
Apparently, there was recently a case on United where an emotional support animal had ITS OWN emotional support animal. That's right: One animal was supporting a person, the other animal was supporting the first animal.
We know the animals were a dog and a monkey, but we don't know which one was supporting the other.
But we DO know that United is so worried about bad press after their mistakes in the past few years that they DID let the whole menagerie fly.
