Daniel the duck gives emotional support to anxious passenger, wins heartsDaniel the duck

This duck is special and a very cute one at that. Daniel the duck is no ordinary bird, it provides a special service. Daniel is an emotional support duck for a passenger who is worried about flying.

Daniel's owner is scared of flying. The entire time on the flight, Daniel was quietly quacking and the owner was 'kissed him' on his beak several times.

The incident was tweeted by author Mark Essig who took pictures of the duck on his flight from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Asheville.

Four year old Indian runner duck was wearing cute little red booties and a Captain America diaper, to make sure he didn't go to the toilet on the floor of the plane.

Daniel is certified for his emotional support services.
