A man who was allegedly attacked by an emotional support dog on a Delta Airlines flight has filed a lawsuit against the airline and the owner of the animal.
Marlin Jackson has accused both Delta and Ronald Kevin Mundy Jr, a US veteran, of negligence after he was attacked while the flight was boarding in June 2017.
Mr Jackson was seated in a window seat while the dog was next to him on the veteran's lap, according to the lawsuit. The dog then attacked Mr Jackson, leaving his face permanently scarred.
According to the complaint, Mr Jackson "bled so profusely that the entire row of seats had to be removed from the airplane."
"The attack was briefly interrupted when the animal was pulled away from Mr. Jackson. However, the animal broke free and again mauled Mr Jackson's face," the lawsuit continued.

The overwhelming majority of dogs flying as ESA are scams, people looking for free rides for their dogs. What's that certificate cost, like $89 online?

I don't think any of the changes to policy would have prevented this. I don't see how Delta can have actual liability here considering the law required them to allow an emotional support animal.

Just think what would have happened if I had brought my animal support goose on board instead of that dog. Dude would be toast.

When someone says “it was a pit” you know they don’t know a lot about dogs.
