Woman kicked off Frontier flight after she tried to smuggle squirrel onto plane

A woman held up an entire plane after she tried to sneak a squirrel onto the flight.

We aren’t kidding.

A passenger was removed from a Frontier Airlines flight late Tuesday in Orlando, Fla., when she attempted to fly with her “emotional support” squirrel.

It got messier when she refused to leave the plane when she was told no, according to the airline.

A Frontier spokesman said in a statement reported by several outlets that the passenger had alerted the airline that she would be bringing an emotional-support animal on the flight.

But she didn’t tell them it would be so large, or so bright-eyed and bushy-tailed either.

“Rodents, including squirrels, are not allowed on Frontier flights,” the statement read. “The passenger was advised of the policy and asked to deplane.”

Passengers on Twitter were there to capture the spectacle, which included a wild reaction for her when she departed the plane.

No word on the condition of the woman, or her squirrel.
