A passenger was removed from a Frontier Airlines flight on Tuesday night because she wanted to fly with her emotional support squirrel.
“The passenger noted in their reservation that they were bringing an emotional support animal but it was not incidated [sic] that it was a squirrel. Rodents, including squirrels, are not allowed on Frontier flights,” stated the airlines.
According to ABCNews, the Orlando Police Department removed the woman who was advised that squirrels are not allowed on board by Frontier’s support animal policy. Frontier’s website states:
“We do not accept 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.”
Beginning November 1, the airline will only allow dogs and cats as emotional support animals.
When the woman was told of the policy, she refused to leave the plane. Everyone on board was then forced to deplane until the situation was remedied. The flight was delayed for two hours.
