Woman Dragged off Airplane after Bringing Squirrel Onboard

Woman Dragged off Airplane after Bringing Squirrel Onboard

Once the airline realised Torok had brought a squirrel on board, they informed her of the policy but she refused to leave.

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

When the passenger refused to get off the plane, the staff told everyone that they had to get off the plane.

Cindy Torok, the woman who was removed from a Frontier Airlines flight over her emotional support squirrel, says she's planning to take legal action after Tuesday's incident.

It's unclear if the woman will face any charges for clearly defying airline policy by bringing a squirrel on board.

"We need to balance off the need for the airline to protect their passengers at large and set some limits, versus the need of the individual flier", said Covelman. "Now the police just went on to remove her".

Police requested the other passengers disembark while officers dealt with the woman, who was eventually escorted into the main terminals. "Yeah, here's the insane lady", she shouts, as other passengers jeer. Miniature horses also are permitted as trained service animals.

Breast Cancer Screening For Early Detection
According to the National Cancer Institute, approximately 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer at some point in their life. For the average woman, its about 12.5 percent; for high-risk women, its 20 percent or higher.


Airline lobby group releases statement about problems posed by animals on flights; Raymond Arroyo shares "Friday follies" on 'The Ingraham Angle'.

"Please allow Cindy Torok to be accompanied by her emotional support animal in the cabin of the aircraft", the letter read. Delta said it "carries approximately 700 service or support animals daily - almost 250,000 annually".

The Frontier Airlines flight out of Orlando was delayed for two hours due to the ordeal.

Most people wouldn't consider squirrels as emotionally supportive animals, but when you hear that emotional support ducks and peacocks exist, you just know that anything is possible.

There are other airlines that have had similar issues with people trying to bring animals on the plane.

Now another unusual choice for an emotional support animal is making headlines, and this time it's a squirrel.

. "There's something mentally wrong with that woman to think that her squirrel's a support animal & I hope the squirrel is taken away from her".
