The revolt against the Emotional Support Animals is well underway and we have to say it’s past due.
The recent news that Delta Airlines denied boarding to an Emotional Support Peacock, yes you read that right, was a victory for common sense.
Now a Florida student says that the whole thing has taken a dark turn and Spirit Airlines forced her to flush her emotional support animal down the toilet.
Spirit Airlines denies it, and to be honest it doesn’t sound like something you could technically force someone to do. Belen Aldecosea claims she was told to kill the animal or let it loose outside, which again doesn’t sound like something an airline could realistically do for Health & Safety reasons.
They did refuse to let the animal fly, but unless you’re literally being relocated by the FBI or Prison Service, you always have a choice.
You can choose not to fly.
So that emotional support animal that was so utterly necessary to her sense of well-being was less important than, say, taking the next flight.
But the 21-year-old is sticking to her story and sucking up all that attention. “She was scared. I was scared. It was horrifying trying to put her in the toilet,” she told the paper. “I sat there for a good 10 minutes crying in the stall.”
Obviously, because she’s graphically describing the murder of her pet and it has to be about her feelings.
With any luck, she’ll be banned from keeping animals and this won’t happen again, but we do fully support this kickback against the insane amounts of animals that are now being carried around by emotionally immature and unstable Americans.
An Emotional Support Animal literally says you cannot cope with life like a fucking adult. And we should stop coddling people like this.
