Woman removed from flight from Orlando to Cleveland because of her ‘emotional support squirrel’

[Ed. – Rodentaphobia]

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.

Cindy Torak, the Ohio woman who was removed from the flight, recounted the ordeal to KTLA sister station WJW in Cleveland on Wednesday.

She said she had obtained the proper letters to bring her 11-week-old squirrel Daisy on board, and her daughter even called Frontier ahead to get clearance.
