Friday Poll: Hidden Monkey on Plane


If a passenger sneaks a monkey on to a plane, what should authorities do?

On a flight from Ohio to Nevada, a flight crew discovered that a passenger was concealing a service monkey:

Frontier Airlines spokesman Richard Oliver says the incident happened Tuesday night on a flight from Columbus, Ohio, to Las Vegas.

Oliver says the passenger broke policy by not informing the airline that he was bringing a service animal onboard, and then refused to turn over documents verifying the monkey’s status.

McCarran International Airport spokeswoman Christine Crews says law enforcement officials met up with the plane and determined that the monkey was a certified service animal.

Oliver says the animal was brought surreptitiously onto the plane in a duffel bag and never became loose or uncontained during the flight.

    …a “service” monkey..? Why not a kangaroo. It’s got pockets. Great for more carry ons…

    It makes no sense not to declare the animal if it is a service animal. It was wrong to put the animal in a duffel bag, too. That’s not a suitable container for an expensive animal.

    Should be a fine (like the idea of paying for a ticket) for sneaking it on. If the owner had paperwork, he needs to carry it with him. Totally agree that the monkey should not have been in bag. That is completely wrong.
