FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — In the latest installment of Frequent Liars And Their Emotional Support Pet Scams, two dogs this morning pretty much had sex in Fort Lauderdale’s Delta Sky Club.
They licked each other. They jumped on top of each other. They barked in loving tones. They then headed for the snack area. Fortunately for the Sky Club members watching in disbelief, these dogs enjoyed collars and leashes, so they weren’t able to slobber on the food after slobbering over each other.
BocaNewsNow.com, which spends quite a bit of time flying Delta (NYSE: DAL) — and is admittedly tired of being licked and sniffed by dogs — queried the Sky Club attendant about whether dog sex was permitted. She told us that they’re emotional support dogs so there was little she could do. She ultimately did tell one owner that his dog needed to be in a carrier.
The other dog owner took the hint and left.
This is the latest example of the absurdity of the emotional support dog scam that so many Frequent Liars have embarked upon. These scammers claim they have an emotional support issue so assert they can fly with their pets for free. Airline representatives — afraid to challenge these owners themselves — universally say that “they had to show paperwork when they checked in.” But that’s a lie. These Frequent Liars head straight for security where they aren’t challenged, then roam freely with their pets — claiming someone else said it was “okay.”
Perhaps permission was transmitted to them through their tin foil hats.
You would think the airlines would be cracking down already. A Delta Airlines passenger was recently mauled on a flight by a so-called emotional support pet. We can only hope that Delta’s insurance company — which will likely have to shell out substantial cash — will send a message throughout the airline industry that the scams have to stop.
Perhaps Flight Attendant unions will step in and say their members are professionals, not zoo keepers.
A seeing eye dog? Absolutely welcome. Two schnauzers on a JFK to PBI flight being held by a woman named Bitzy on her way to Boca for her third breast enhancement and second divorce filing? Not so much.
How many multi-million dollar settlements will it take before airlines put a leash on this out of control pet problem?
We believe this must stop now.
Just like dog sex in the Skyclub.
