Meet Lilou, the therapy pig.

She’s recently started working at San Francisco airport to soothe anxious passengers.

She is the newest member of the airport’s “Wag Brigade”, an Animal Assisted Therapy program not footballers’ wives and girlfriends we hasten to add.

Animals are recruited from The San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), who bring dogs (and now pigs) certified through their Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) Program to walk around the airport terminals wearing vests that read “Pet Me!”.

According to the website, animals are “carefully selected for their temperament and airport suitability”.
