Emotional-support animals were becoming so out of control that many airlines began restricting what passengers could bring on the plane (especially after one got violent). In a recent spate, one passenger's service animal caused an airplane to be delayed for nearly two hours after it was discovered.
A passenger was removed from a Fronteir Airlines flight this week when she tried to bring her squirrel on board. The woman refused to deboard the plane when she was asked.
A spokesperson said that the woman had alerted to the airline prior to boarding that she would be bringing her support animal, but, funnily enough, she forget to mention that it was one that can climb trees with bushy tails.
“Rodents, including squirrels, are not allowed on Frontier flights,” the statement read. “The passenger was advised of the policy and asked to deplane.”
The flight, bound for Cleveland from Orlando, was delayed for hours, authorities were called, and the woman was greeted by police, though, no charges were made.
“I just want everyone to know that all passengers had to deplane my flight to cleveland because a woman brought a SQUIRREL ON THE PLANE," a post on Instagram said.
