Emotional support squirrel gets woman kicked off flight, passengers cheer A passenger was booted from a Frontier Airlines plane in Orlando after she came aboard with a nutty companion — a squirrel that she insisted was her emotional support animal. The woman noted in her reservation that she was flying Tuesday night with an emotional support pet, but did not indicate that it was a squirrel, according to WKMG. She refused to get off the Cleveland-bound flight, so the crew summoned police, who told the rest of the passengers to deplane so they could deal with the woman, the airline said. “Police eventually escorted the passenger off the aircraft and took her to the main terminal,” according to Frontier, which added; “Rodents, including squirrels, are not allowed on Frontier flights.” It was not known if the unidentified woman would face charges. Footage shared on Twitter showed the woman being removed from the plane in a wheelchair — as she flashed a middle finger to jeers from other passengers. The flight took off for Cleveland after a two-hour delay. “The joke of the plane was hashtag squirrel so you’ll probably see it all over social media,” passenger Amber Calhoun told news5cleveoland.com. On its website, Frontier’s policy reads: “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.” Airlines cracked down on what animals passengers could use for emotional support after images of several unique creatures went viral earlier this year. .
