@hawkeye10,
According the ADA emotional well being animals are not protected under federal law....

III. Other Support or Therapy Animals

While Emotional Support Animals or Comfort Animals are often used as part of a medical treatment plan as therapy animals, they are not considered service animals under the ADA. These support animals provide companionship, relieve loneliness, and sometimes help with depression, anxiety, and certain phobias, but do not have special training to perform tasks that assist people with disabilities. Even though some states have laws defining therapy animals, these animals are not limited to working with people with disabilities and therefore are not covered by federal laws protecting the use of service animals. Therapy animals provide people with therapeutic contact, usually in a clinical setting, to improve their physical, social, emotional, and/or cognitive functioning.

But the odd thing is - if you have a service animal -- all you have to do is say you have a disability and that your animal is a service animal. No certification or other papers are required.

@hawkeye10,
And upon further reading - this pig was not allowed to stay on the plane. Even a service animal for a disabled individual can be booted if it is found to be disruptive or unsafe.

@hawkeye10,
no I read it elsewhere...in either case, I can't believe that she was allowed to even bring a pig on board.

Not only allowed, by law the airline could not refuse. The main outrage here from my perspective is the state of the law, again. Every time I think that I have finally come to a correct understanding of how bad our laws are I get educated on the need to move my appraisal lower.
