The woman noted in her reservation that she was bringing an emotional support animal on Flight 1612 but did not indicate it was a rodent
ORLANDO, Fla. — Police had to remove a woman who brought an “emotional support squirrel” on a Frontier Airlines flight headed from Orlando, Florida, to Cleveland.
Frontier says the passenger had noted in her reservation that she was bringing an emotional support animal with her on Flight 1612 Tuesday night. But she did not indicate it was a squirrel.
“Rodents, including squirrels, are not allowed on Frontier flights,” a statement read. “The passenger was advised of the policy and asked to deplane.”
The airline says police were called when the passenger refused to leave the plane.
Police requested the other passengers disembark while officers dealt with the woman, who was eventually escorted into the main terminals.
Authorities said that the passenger vacated the plane when officers arrived and that they “did not have to take any action.”
A video posted on Twitter showed a woman being escorted through Gate 15 in a wheelchair as others clapped and cheered.
The flight left for Cleveland about two hours later.
So im flying back to cleveland and everyone got on the plane then was asked to exit the plane. Only to later find out a woman brought a squirrel in her carry on and labeled it as her emotional support pet. Then refuses to get off the plane until the cops come????????
