Emotional support animals could soon be banned from planes after attacking passengers

By

We've all heard horror stories about emotional support animals. The main problem? Often, emotional support animals don't receive anywhere near as much support as a service animal. One restaurant even went as far as banning emotional support animals and accused people of abusing the Americans with Disabilities Act. 

According to The Washington Post, Marlin Jackson was attacked by a supposed "emotional support dog" on a plane ride from Atlanta to San Diego. The dog, reportedly weighing in at 50 pounds, was on its owner's lap instead of on the floor and lunged at Marlin, causing facial injuries that required 28 stitches and left him with permanent scarring.
