WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn., Nov. 29 (UPI) -- A woman and her pot-bellied pig were booted off a Washington, D.C.-bound plane after passengers complained the pig was disruptive and stinky.

The pig, thought to be about 70 pounds, had been brought aboard the US Airways plane at Bradley International Airport in Connecticut as an emotional-support animal. Crew members determined the animal was too disruptive and asked the woman to leave with the pig before the flight departed.


Some people aboard the plane thought the woman was carrying a large duffle bag over her shoulder.

"But it turns out it wasn't a duffel bag. We could smell it and it was a pig on a leash," Passenger Jonathan Skolnik told ABC News.

"She tethered it to the arm rest next to me and started to deal with her stuff, but the pig was walking back and forth."
