Police removed a woman from a Frontier Airlines flight in Orlando, Florida, after she brought an “emotional support squirrel” aboard and refused to leave.

The woman indicated during the reservation process for Flight 1612 to Cleveland that she would be bringing an emotional support animal, but failed to mention that the animal would be a squirrel, as opposed to the more conventional cat or dog. Frontier Airlines does not allow rodents aboard flights, but the woman refused to leave when airline personnel discovered what she’d brought on-board.

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

The woman delayed the flight two hours for love of her squirrel and defiance of airline regulations. Passengers exited the aircraft at the behest of police while officers dealt with the woman. One passenger tweeted video of the incident.

The authorities eventually escorted her into the terminals, after which passengers re-embarked and left for Cleveland.
