For many, a squirrel climbing up their body would create a significant amount of anxiety, but not for this woman on a Frontier Airlines flight. We’ve heard of emotional support peacocks before, but Tuesday evening was the first time a passenger tried to bring a squirrel on board, and yes, it went exactly how you’d expect.
Although Cindy Torok indicated in her reservation that she would be bringing an emotional support animal on board, she never mentioned that it was a squirrel. Since the airline doesn’t allow rodents — only dogs and cats — she was asked to leave the plane. She refused, police were called, and everyone was forced to deplane. Once Torok was removed, the flight from Orlando to Cleveland resumed as scheduled.
