Delta Air Lines Cracking Down On Emotional Support Animals
Delta Air Lines is tightening the leash on support animals taken aboard flights. Beginning March 1st, passengers who wish to take their support animal aboard a Delta flight must show proof of health and required animal vaccinations 48 hours in advance. Delta transports 700 service or emotional support animals every day.
In a statement, Delta says travelers with psychiatric support animals must also have a document confirming their pet can behave. According to the airline, the intention is to keep untrained and sometimes aggressive animals from traveling without a kennel in the cabin.
For the record, customers have reportedly attempted to fly with some exotic animals, including comfort turkeys, sugar gliders, possums, snakes, and spiders. As for what spawned the move, Delta says they’ve seen an 84% jump in “animal incidents” since 2016. That includes everything from bathroom accidents to biting and other issues. Animals who travel in underseat kennels are not affected by this rule.

Elderly Couple Accidentally Donates Soup Can Full Of Cash To Food Pantry
Somewhere around the Boston-area is a Campbell's Soup can filled with cash and not soup.
A Massachusetts couple donated the can to a local soup kitchen with 25-hundred dollars in it. Amanda Mattuchio says her parents cleared out their cupboards a few weeks ago and when they went to add more cash to the can, they realized it was gone.
Mattuchio says, "They realized it had been put in with the donations. It was kind of devastating." The daughter explained that it’s a small fortune to the couple.
Middleton Food Pantry workers searched for the can only to come up empty. Both the family and pantry hope whoever has the can will return the money. Source: Fox 6 Now
STUDENTS BRIBE SUPERINTENDENT WITH CANDY FOR SNOW DAY
Students in the Hillsboro, Missouri, school district learn about a whole lot of things, and apparently bribery is one of them.
During a recent cold snap and snowstorm, students hoping for a snow day took things to another level. Superintendent Dr. Aaron Cornman found a mysterious package at home on his doorstep. He opened it up and found a few packages of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Attached to them was a handwritten which read, "You know what to do."
Dr. Cornman tweeted a photo of the bribe and wrote, "The first round of 'Please Call School Off Tomorrow' candy has arrived. Students in my neighborhood really want a Snow Day!!! They remembered my favorite!"
Unfortunately, students are going to have to sweeten up the deal next time, because it didn't work. He later tweeted that school would be open. (WSVN-TV)
