According to a report from the New York Post, a Cleveland-bound woman was kicked off an Orlando flight this morning after she attempted to fly with an emotional support squirrel. The woman reportedly indicated that she planned to fly with an emotional support animal Tuesday night, but did not specify that the animal would be a squirrel. When she was asked to leave the plane, the Post says, she refused, forcing Frontier Airlines to deplane other passengers before forcibly escorting her out.
“Police eventually escorted the passenger off the aircraft and took her to the main terminal," Frontier said, adding that "Rodents, including squirrels, are not allowed on Frontier flights."
As the woman was taken away in a wheelchair, she gave the middle finger to jeering passengers. The flight eventually took off without the woman and her squirrel, but with a two-hour delay.
Frontier Airlines which oddly has a squirrel on the tail (see the pic above) forbids "unusual or exotic animals including but not limited to rodents, reptiles, insects, hedgehogs, rabbits, sugar gliders, non-household birds or improperly cleaned and/or animals with foul odor," and will only allow cats and dogs. It is unclear if the woman will face charges.
