My parrots are great “emotional support,” and my husband and I always take them with us wherever we go. There are pet friendly hotels (usually requiring non refundable deposits). We usually drive to our destinations with them in travel cages.
Are you serious? You take your parrots on car rides?

I have an emotional support dog.

What I do is I leave his narrow ass at home, locked up in a crate. Then when I'm at someone's house and I'm over it I say "whelp, love to stay and chat some more but I have to go home and let the dog out".

I don’t question that the lady has crippling anxiety. That’s a thing. It’s real. It affects people’s abilitiy’s to function.

I suspect that if she or a caretaker had worked with Via Rail they could have reached a decision ahead of time. Like - a special seat, a cage, an understanding that a rabbit can’t take the train. The problem here is showing up on travel day with a fucking rabbit.

How much do you want to bet someone else on that train had a debilitating fear of, or allergy to, rabbits, and would have crucified Via if they’d let that rabbit on?

There is probably an untapped market for rabbit seats designed for commuter rail.
