Delta Passenger Viciously Attacked By Service Dog

It would be an understatement to say that 2017 has been a bad year for airlines, and yet another incident went down this weekend.
U.S. Marine, Ronald Mundy Jr. boarded a Delta flight at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta on Sunday, and along for the flight was his emotional support dog, a chocolate lab/pointer mix. The passenger seated next to Mundy and his dog, Marlin Jackson, began to worry when the dog started to growl. Shortly after, things went south.
The dog reportedly attacked Jackson, biting him several times and causing severe injuries to the face. According to an eyewitness, “The gentleman’s face was completely bloody. Blood in his eye, cheeks, nose, his mouth, his shirt was covered in blood.”
The crew on board immediately came to the assistance of Jackson and he was taken off of the flight and to the hospital to be treated. Sources say he’s currently in stable condition.
Mundy and his dog were removed from the flight and rebooked after the animal was cleared by law enforcement (whatever that means). Munday has not been charged with anything and the dog was required to be kenneled on the subsequent flight.
Mundy was reportedly heard crying, “I know they’re going to put him down,” after the incident.
There’s been no word from Delta on whether they plan to change their service animal policy after this incident.
