Airlines better begin specifying the passenger requirements before this happens again. If we keep seeing more exotic animals on flights, then before you know it we’ll be seeing signs demanding that you must be a mammal to fly or something ridiculous like that. That is until someone decides to bring an elephant on board.
We suspect this passenger wanted to impress their family with the best turkey for Thanksgiving by bringing one fresh without antibiotics rather than a farm-raised turkey from the market. Or maybe this gigantic bird doesn’t do well with other pets. Whatever the reason, just imagine the uneasiness of a turkey staring at you during your entire flight.
