Animals On Planes: 1,200 Chickens Flown Cross-Country
The poultry were just another example of animals transported by air:
- After learning how overcrowded California animal shelters are with tiny dogs, airlines including Virgin America have stepped up with Operation Chihuahua, transporting dozens of dogs to New York for adoption. West coasters can help prep the dogs for flight with "bathing, caging and snuggling" with Project Flying Chihuahuas.
- The Department of Transportation now recommends that U.S. carriers allow certain unusual animals in the cabin as service or therapy animals. This may include pot-bellied pigs, monkeys or miniature horses (!), as long as they don't cause a "significant disruption" in service.
Have you seen any unusual animals on a plane?
