Emotional Support Squirrel A No-Go On Frontier Flight

Emotional Support Squirrel A No-Go On Frontier Flight

"Her carrier was on her lap and I saw something moving and I said, "Oh you have a little puppy" and she said 'No, it's actually a squirrel, it's my emotional support animal.' I said 'Oh".

Because flying is an absolutely terrifying experience for a lot of people, emotional support animals are permitted on most U.S. airlines - but after a couple of, well, quite disturbing incidents, they've had to be pretty careful about which animals they allow to fly in the cabin. The woman refused to get off the flight, Frontier said, and Orlando police stepped in.

All the passengers were ordered off the plane while the drama was sorted out.

ABC13 reports that the woman boarded a Frontier Airlines flight after previously informing the staff that she would be traveling with her emotional support animal. The airline never allowed squirrels or other rodents to be taken onto the plane.

A spokesperson for Frontier said that Cindy had noted she was bringing a support animal with her, but failed to indicate that it was a squirrel.

Police asked the other passengers to disembark while officers dealt with the woman, who was eventually escorted into the main terminals.

The woman was attacked while on the job about 10 this morning near the community of Gangan, about 206km south west of Yirrkala. The ranger's body and the crocodile were found just before 5pm less than one kilometre from the scene of the attack.

"We need to balance off the need for the airline to protect their passengers at large and set some limits, versus the need of the individual flier", said Covelman. "Yeah, here's the insane lady", she shouts, as other passengers jeer.

The incident has resulted in airlines modifying their policy towards what kind of animals constitute as a viable pet for "emotional support'".

Most people wouldn't consider squirrels as emotionally supportive animals, but when you hear that emotional support ducks and peacocks exist, you just know that anything is possible.

The woman boarded the plane but cabin crew soon found out that she was traveling with a squirrel.

According to the outlet, many passengers on the same flight used social media to vent their frustration at the unexpected delay and the trouble she put them all through with her refusal to deplane alone.
