Have You Seen This? Jurassic service animal conundrum

By Martha Ostergar, Contributor | Posted - May 19th, 2018 @ 2:01pm

ISLA NUBLAR — Flying can be incredibly stressful, so it’s always nice to have a few creature comforts around when you travel.

For some, the “creature” in creature comforts is an actual creature, but that doesn’t mean that all animals are exactly welcome on an airplane. For example, no one wants a real “Snakes on a Plane” situation 40,000 feet in the air.

The couple in video — known to some as Chris and Bryce — find out at baggage check that Chris’ service animal is not welcome on a flight to Isla Nublar. So it falls to the pair to convince the desk agent that their sweet ol’ Blue is trained and ready to fly.

You can tell from the beginning that Blue is a special animal. She may not be calm, but she is almost obedient, which should count for something. Additionally, a few yips and screeches shouldn’t disturb too many passengers, and claws scraping the crate are just a part of her playful personality.

We all know that animals like Blue make good (but sassy) pets, and she’s obviously ready to fly. Still, Chris and Bryce are having a hard time with arguments from the agent such as, “It could kill everyone onboard.”

By the time the video ends, we still don’t know if Chris and Bryce make their flight, but we will report any new information about this story on — probably in approximately 33 days. Until then, and to offer up a little hope, just remember:

“Travel, uh, finds a way.”

-Dr. Ian Malcolm, probably.
