A turkey is causing some flap about emotional support animals on planes after a reddit user posted a picture of the Thanksgiving bird in the seat near them on a recent flight.

Fox News reported the passenger gave proper documentation proving the turkey was actually their “emotional support animal” so Delta allowed the bird on board… and even gave it its own seat.

According to Fox News, Reddit user biggestlittlepickle posted the picture, saying that his neighbor, a flight attendant, took this snapshot of the poultry on a plane.

Fox reported unclelimpy, another Reddit user who is friends with the Delta pilot on that flight, followed with another shot of the turkey receiving VIP treatment as it was rolled through the airport on a wheelchair.
