Delta Airlines Gets Backlash For Ban on Pit Bull Service Dogs

SAN FRANCISCO, California – Thousands of people around the world signed a petition against Delta’s ban.

Dog owners and animal advocates say Delta Airlines’ new ban on pit bulls as service and support animals is unfair, and they are calling for the ban to be lifted.

Thousands of people around the world signed a petition against Delta’s ban, which went into effect on July 10. The airline prohibited all pit bull-type dogs from flying on their planes as service or support animals. Now, the company is facing backlash worldwide.

“Pit bulls are not more dangerous than other dogs,” said Franck Kangah, a professional dog trainer. “I’ve seen little dogs that were more dangerous than other pit bulls.”

A petition on Care2.com has gathered more than 100,000 signatures to fight Delta’s ban.
