Feathers Fly Over Turkey Who Was A Passenger On A Delta Flight

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. OK, therapy animals are out of control. Feathers are flying on the web over a photo of a turkey in the comfort of a wheelchair arriving on board a Delta flight. Another shows the turkey peering through the seats with an arm around it, presumably that of the human who needed a therapy pet. A Delta spokesman told USA Today it is happy to accommodate turkeys, as long as it doesn't affect the health and safety of others on board. It's MORNING EDITION.
