The Department of Transportation is proposing new rules that would greatly restrict the types of ’emotional support’ animals allowed on airplanes. Under the new proposal, only dogs that are specifically trained to aid humans as service animals would be allowed on flights. All other animals would have to fly under the normal rules for pets. The DoT says too many passengers “falsely claim their pets are service animals”. Recent years have seen people try to board flights with monkeys, snakes, possums, peacocks, and other exotic creatures.
