A PLANE passenger was booted off a flight because her rowdy emotional support PIG caused mayhem on board.
The woman was given her marching orders after the havoc-wreaking hog began walking up and down the aisles.
Even attempts to strap the farmyard animal to an arm rest failed.
One shocked onlooker said the brown swine looked around five stone as it was tossed over the unidentified woman's shoulder and marched off.

I wonder how they’ll feel about my emotional-support Muslim.
I have an emotional support elephant. I demand the airline not interfere with bringing my needed support animal on a flight with me.
Sorry people are NUTS with all these emotional support animals.
I don’t doubt that people have been through some terrible things and and a animal companion could help. But keep the dog at home.
We really are in Robert Heinlein’s “Crazy Years”. In his “Future History” timeline, this period of unrest is eventually followed by a welcomed military democracy, where only persons who served in the military were allowed to vote. The idea being that only those willing to die for their country should have the power to elect.
LOL. This thread is going to be awesome.
Picture at link shows a BIG PIG!
I do not support emotional suppport animals
Anyone flies a lot sees it
Dinks with dogs on planes
The article on mini pigs said that the breeders encouraged buyers to believe that many stayed small, but it sounds like the breeders were over optimistic on size limits.
The air carrier access act needs to get in line with the ADA and distinguish so called emotional support animals from genuine service animals. Even then they should retain the right to place overall passenger safety first even if it means refusing to board (provided other provisions can be made) a passenger with a service animal.
>>the pig needed an emotional support animal
I had the same thought. Perhaps a border collie to keep it under control.
I can’t wait to fly with my emotional support emu. She’s fully grown!
Well if the airline says no don’t get all blubbery about it.
I have an emotional support Smith & Wesson that I carry with me wherever and whenever I can legally do so. I like bacon! Nuff said.
Do people have to pay for an extra seat for these support animals?
I love green Acres. The humor stands up well, even after all these years.
Bit o’ trivia for you:
The man who played Mr. Ziffel went deaf (due to old age). So the director had stage hand with a pole standing off-camera. Whenever Mr. Ziffel had a line to say, the stage hand touched Mr. Ziffel’s leg with the pole.
LOL! My Grandpa used to recite that poem:
(((I have no idea of the title or the author, but this is what I remember)))
One evening in October
When I was far from sober
And, carrying a load with manly pride
My feet began to stutter
So I lay down in the gutter
And a pig came up and lay down by my side.
We began to sing “Tis fair weather,
When good friends get together”
When a lady passing by was heard to say
You can tell a man who boozes
By the company he chooses
And the pig got up and slowly walked away.
