ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — 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.

The airline says rodents, including squirrels, are not allowed. 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.

The flight left for Cleveland about two hours later.

  1. Personally I love squirrels, and can understand having one as an emotional support pet. However by their own nature, they do not make good pets, nor should they be removed from nature. If you cant make the trip alone, you dont need to make the trip. Yes, I actually get very aggravated and my anxiety goes out of control when I have to deal with more than one or two people at a time. But the social laws, simply do not conform to those of us that need emotional support of any kind. There fore as sad as it is, we are better off staying home….
