I don't think so, in this case where the bird is a necessary companion in a cramped space with the potential for injury to the bird and/or other people.

It seems emotional support animals such as dogs, are causing many problems. So, I am not sure what the answer here is for other types of support animals.

"The news comes on heels of Delta’s controversial crackdown of emotional support and service animals. On Jan. 19, the airline announced forthcoming restrictions in hopes of curbing an abuse of policy and an 84 percent increase in ill animal behavior such as urinating, defecating, biting and attacks on flights."

It all grows back, it's the feathers that get cut, not any bone. Feathers are just like hair, it's not cruel to cut your hair.

:eye roll: Oh FFS!

I once lived in a beautiful home in the woods that had a really cool outdoor porch with a tree growing through it along with handrails since the porch sat maybe 8 feet off the ground.

One side of the house was all windows that wrapped around a bit including a room next to the porch. So one evening a friggin' peacock leaped up from the ground to the top of the hand railing. It sat there for about a minute before leaping off. It didn't fly - it just leapt from a standstill!

Imagine the peacock 'deciding' it wanted to get into the aisle because it didn't like turbulence and leaping 20 feet from a stationary position.

Right, so in this specific case the peacock, being an erractic bird as you suggest, may also need a dose of a calming drug in addition to the clipped wings, to protect everybody and everything concerned.

Where there's a will, there's a way.

Drug the bird?????????????????

Maybe a little Prozac would do the job. That's the same drug used by a man I knew here in town. Shortly after starting on it, he murdered his parents and a neighbor before killing himself. If this insane woman wants a ten-foot bird with large claws by her side in close quarters with strangers, she can buy her own plane. Otherwise gtfo of the airport.

Or maybe a little Oxycontin would be the 'birdie' of choice...scratch that.

I am not sure why you would suggest harmful drugs for birds when there are special calming drugs specific for birds.

If you read the article at the opening post, service dogs are biting people, urinating and defecating in the aircraft, why don't they say gtfo of the airport too?

I would have to drug Mason if I took him on a plane. I'd have to ask the vet if so, but he gets melatonin for general anxieties.
