Pit bull lovers descended on Twitter to defend the breed. Delta says the rules changes follow several recent incidents in which employees were bitten. Animal lovers pointed out that real service dogs are carefully chosen and highly trained to perform their important duties.
@Delta your new policy banning any “pitbull type” service dogs is insulting. It’s based on misinformation and irrational fear. You continue to perpetuate a myth that furthers the suffering of the most tortured breed. My rescue pitbull Leo is disappointed in you. pic.twitter.com/XVuvp7oyhZ— Annie Brag (@annimal_18) June 21, 2018
