Reports emerged that San Francisco International Airport introduced LiLou, a 5-year-old Juliana pig, as a part of the Wag Brigade programme – making her the first airport therapy pig. The Wag Brigade programme allows trained therapy animals, mostly dogs, into the airport to help reduce the stress and anxiety for passengers who are travelling. LiLou greets passengers and entertains them by playing a song on a toy piano.
