A woman was kicked out of a flight because she chose to bring a squirrel onboard, which she claimed to be her 'emotional support pet.'

The identity of the elder is yet to be revealed, but she had to be escorted out of the flight from Orlando to Cleveland on Wednesday, October 9, 2018.

As reported by Inside Edition, the flight was delayed for two hours because the woman refused to leave her seat, forcing the staff to call the police.

Bringing an animal on an airplane is nothing out of the ordinary; it's curious, yes, and people will often stare at the animals, but, for some people, they are a required company.

TAKEN BY FORCE

While most people choose dogs or cats as support pets, the woman chose a squirrel, which, unlike the previous specimens, is not allowed inside the aircraft.

In the video that was shared online, police officers can be seen escorting the woman, who is sitting on a cart, while waving her arms in protest.

COMPANY'S POLICY

It has been reported that the passenger informed Frontier Airlines that she was going to bring an animal with her, but failed to specify what type of animal.

The airline's policy couldn't be clearer: the only support animals allowed on domestic flights are 'domesticated dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, or small household birds.'

JUDGING OTHERS BY THEIR LOOKS

But animals are not the only reason why people get kicked off flights, as a woman named Jeanne Lehman learned while traveling from Halifax to Toronto.

Lehman, a community activist and officer with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, was ordered to leave the aircraft because of a rash on her face.

THE SITUATION WAS BADLY HANDLED

Prior to boarding the plane, Lehman consulted a doctor, who determined that the rash was not contagious and assured her that traveling wouldn't be a problem.

When she was escorted out of the plane, she felt humiliated and now is claiming that she was a victim of a 'systemic act of racism' by the Air Canada staff.
