Yesterday, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced its final revision of rules under the Air Carrier Access Act which had required air carriers to treat emotional support animals as service dogs. The revisions give airlines significantly more discretion:
Like everything else in 2020, fall will be different this year because of COVID-19. Many of the activities that we look forward to and associate with the season — attending a high school football game or heading to a harvest festival — might now be canceled. Fortunately, there are plenty of activities we can continue to enjoy with our dogs while staying physically distanced from other people.

How many more sacrifices must I make this year? Dear New York Governor Cuomo: Now that New York is free and clear of the virus, I ask that you not force me to cancel my quail hunting trip. Your quarantine interferes with what I believe is, in fact, “essential travel” for me. How do I […]
