Via abcnews.go.com. Let me just say this first...Florida.
The Orlando Police Department was forced to remove a woman from a Frontier Airlines plane Tuesday night after she tried to bring a squirrel on board, claiming it was an emotional support animal. Yes, a squirrel. That rodent that darts out into the road in front of you, stops, starts to go back, turns around again, stops...
According to Frontier Airlines, "The passenger noted in their reservation that they were bringing an emotional support animal but it was not incidated [sic] that it was a squirrel," the airline said in a statement provided to Orlando ABC affiliate WFTV. "Rodents, including squirrels, are not allowed on Frontier flights."
But, she was determined to keep Rocky the flying squirrel on the flight and refused to leave. Police were, called, passengers were deplaned, and she was removed waving to everyone not using all the fingers of her hand.
Check out the response of those who were "delayed by squirrel" as she was brought out.
