Squirrel Woman removed from plane after boarding with 'emotional support' squirrel

Flying squirrels are a species, not a job description -- at least according to Frontier Airlines.

The Orlando Police Department was forced to remove a woman from a Frontier Airlines plane Tuesday night after she tried to bring a squirrel on board, claiming it was an emotional support animal, according to the airline. The woman was advised that squirrels are not allowed on board by Frontier's support animal policy.

I like squirrels and all, but no... just... no.

Yeah, I wouldn't want to be on a plane with a tree-rat that got loose and started running all over the place.

Well it was Frontier Airlines, a company well known for animals on their planes:

How long did it take you to find a plane with a squirrel on the tail, WildaBeast?

Someone else posted that picture in a thread about this incident on another board. They did all the work finding it; I just stole it from there.
