Woman thrown off flight with her 'emotional support' squirrel

  • Woman's emotional support squirrel kicked off flight

A woman boarding a Frontier Airlines flight this week had to be escorted off the aircraft after she brought along her unlikely "emotional support" animal - with footage of the incident promptly going viral and getting picked up by local news station, News 6 WKMG.

The flyer told the USA -based airline before she arrived at the airport that she would be bringing the animal but when they realised it was a squirrel they refused to let her on the plane.

When Torok defied staff requests and refused to get off the plane, police were called to remove her.

A travel "tail" as some have called it, she won't soon forget.

Torok claims she brought a doctor's note and her daughter reached out to Frontier prior to the flight, in order to ensure she would be able to travel with Daisy. "I'm upset and angry the way it had to happen".

Frontier Airlines said, however, that "the passenger noted in their reservation that they were bringing an emotional support animal but it was not indicated that it was a squirrel".

According to the airline's policy regarding animals, "rodents, including squirrels, are not allowed" on its flights, regardless of their function. The woman was removed from the plane at Orlando International Airport on Tuesday night after refusing to get off the Cleveland-bound flight.

"I was treated very poorly".

"I will own a big portion of this airline", Torok told Fox 8 Cleveland.

"We're going to call the ADA (American with Disabilities Act) and talk to them and see what they have to say about it", she said. "I love squirrels & our family even raised a baby squirrel for a year but you're not allowed to keep them as pets". They applauded when Torok was finally taken away in a wheelchair by police. "I'm going for blood". "I'm proud of my mom for sticking up for her rights". "We got to fight for your rights". Earlier this month, Frontier announced a new policy set to go into effect November 1 that includes limiting emotional support animals to just cats and dogs.

Jokes aside about flying squirrels, nuts served on planes and bushy-tailed passengers, squirrels and planes do not actually mix.
