Weird news Wednesday: woman tries to bring emotional support squirrel on a plane

First it was peacocks, now it’s squirrels.

A woman was removed from a Frontier flight from Orlando to Cleveland after she brought a squirrel on the plane. The flight was delayed for two hours and according to passengers who spoke with Fox 8 Cleveland, everyone had to deplane after the unnamed passenger refused to do so.

Frontier released a statement about the incident.

“On flight 1612 from Orlando to Cleveland this evening, a passenger boarded the aircraft with a squirrel saying it was an emotional support animal. The passenger noted in their reservation that they were bringing an emotional support animal but it was not indicated that it was a squirrel. Rodents, including squirrels, are not allowed on Frontier flights. The passenger was advised of the policy and asked to deplane. When she refused to deplane Orlando Police were called and requested that everyone be deplaned so they could deal with the passenger. Police eventually escorted the passenger off the aircraft and took her to the main terminal.”
