Woman removed from Frontier flight after bringing an ’emotional support’ squirrel onboard
Frontier Airlines said a woman had to be escorted off a flight after bringing an emotional support squirrel onboard.
A US woman was taken off a Frontier Airlines flight after failing to notify the airline that her “emotional support” companion was a squirrel.
When booking her flight, the woman informed the airline she was bringing an emotional support animal but failed to mention any specifics.
Cabin crew were shocked to find out her animal companion was a caged squirrel.
Flight 1612 from Orlando to Cleveland was delayed nearly two hours because the woman refused to give up her furry friend.
The woman then refused to leave the aircraft prompting cabin crew to ask all passengers to deplane.

“Rodents, including squirrels, are not allowed on Frontier flights,” the airline said in a statement.
“The passenger was advised of the policy and asked to deplane.”
