Turns out pigs can fly. But only when they're classified as "emotional support animals". And then, only when they don't crap in the aisle before takeoff.\n\nYes, in another tale of truth being stranger than fiction, a passenger and her pet hog got kicked off a US Airways flight last Wednesday (in Connecticut of all places!!!) after the farm animal pooped on the plane, causing a huge stench throughout the cabin.\n\nBefore the Washington DC-bound flight even departed from Bradley International Airport, the giant brown pig -- which the owner was allowed to bring on board uncrated as an \u201cemotional support animal\u201d (come on, for real?) -- ran hog wild around the plane, howling, knocking over items, and complaining to flight attendants about a lack of overhead bin space.\n\nA woman was kicked off a US Airways flight after the pig she brought for "emotional support" became disruptive (CNN) pic.twitter.com\/4Y43hPTx1x\n\u2014 faizal (@f4izalhassan) December 1, 2014\n\nThe animal then decided to relieve itself, and despite the owner's attempt to clean up the feces, passengers continued to complain of the unbearable smell.\n\n"After the animal became disruptive, the passenger was asked to deplane\u201d, said Laura Masvidal, a spokesperson for US Airways. The pig-toting woman -- who reprimanded the discourteous swine by calling him a \u201cjerk\u201d -- didn't even bother to argue with flight attendants, instead throwing the hog over her shoulder like a giant baby as she deboarded.\n\n\nChloe Pantazi is an editorial assistant on Thrillist's travel team.
