Woman removed from plane for having 'emotional support squirrel'

Frontier Airlines said a passenger headed from Orlando, Florida to Cleveland, Ohio had noted in her reservation that she was bringing an emotional support animal on Flight 1612. But she did not indicate it was a squirrel. Frontier says rodents, including squirrels, are not allowed on their planes. Police were reportedly called when the passenger refused to leave the plane. Other passengers had to disembark while officers dealt with the woman, who was eventually escorted out. The flight ended up leaving for Cleveland two hours later.
