Is That A Turkey In Your Lap Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

Written by Outdoor Beasts Staff on January 13, 2016

Hunters know the value of an animal whether it be a game animal or a hunting partner such as a dog.

That being said…

Hunters also know that this whole “comfort animal” crap has gone waaaaaay too far.

Case in point…

Passengers on a flight in the U.S. were given a shock when a turkey took a seat in the cabin.

The incredible photo has been shared on the internet, and shows the bird sitting opened beaked, being hugged by its owner.

It is believed the turkey was taken on board as an ’emotional support animal.’ Many flights in the U.S. allow passengers to take animals on board to cure anxiety and fear of flying.

U.S. based airlines such as American Airlines, U.S. Airways, United Airlines and WestJet do allow customers to bring pets on board, but for an additional charge.

There are also limits on routes and flight times.

The photo was shared on Reddit by user biggestlittlepickle, who said that their flight attendant friend took the picture, and predictably, it drew lots of comments.
