Passengers on a recent Delta flight got quite the surprise when they boarded the plane; a turkey would be joining them for the flight.

The turkey even had its own seat. It was accompanying a passenger, who claimed the bird was a 'support' animal.

According to Fox News, the  Air Carrier Access Act, passed in 1986, allows people to fly with service animals. While some animals are prohibited, such as snakes, domestic birds are not banned. The passenger had all the required paperwork, so Delta had no choice but to allow the man and his service turkey to fly.
