Midair mayhem as rat and wild animal terrorize passengers and crew on flight

A plane from Bangkok to Taiwan took a wild turn when a rat and an otter smuggled aboard by a passenger got loose in the main cabin mid-flight.

“I was confused, so he said again, ‘pet rat, pet rat, it has a white body and it’s not small,” one passenger told ViralPress.

The Wednesday flight aboard a low-cost VietJet Air flight erupted in panic as the air hostesses freaked out upon noticing what passengers described as an albino rat and a nearly 1-foot-long otter scurrying around on the floor.

A subsequent police search of the vessel also located a box containing 28 live turtles, a snake, one marmot, two otters and two other rodents of unknown species among the luggage upon landing in Taipei

The turtles will remain in quarantine and the other animals will go to Pingtung University of Science and Technology for examination and “confirmation” before authorities “dispose” of them. 

VietJet Air is the first privately-owned airline established in Vietnam and is currently the largest private airline in the country, according to the Victoria Advocate.
