A passenger who was thrown off a Frontier Airlines flight for refusing to part with her “emotional support” squirrel now vows to sue the airline.
Passenger Cindy Torok relies on her emotional squirrel, Daisy, to deal with her anxiety.
She`ll fit in the palm of my hand. I can cover her up with my other hand. She gives you kisses.
She shares that when flight attendants discovered her squirrel, they asked her to exit the plane immediately. When she refused, they warned they would just de-board everyone else instead. Torok responded:
OK deboard them! But I am taking my squirrel with me…You will not take my baby from me!
If you’re wondering how she got through security in the first place, she claims the TSA had no problem with Daisy, allowing her to hold the little rodent while walking through the metal detector.
If somebody brought a rat or a snake or a spider, tarantula onto the plane, I would feel a little creepy. I can sympathize with the people that don’t want her there but she was in a carrying case!
Frontier, to its credit, full refunded Torok’s ticket price and gave her a voucher for future travel, despite her antics onboard. But that’s not enough. Now she’s suing.
I will own a big portion of this airline. I’m going for blood. I am going all the way. I am contacting an attorney and taking it from there.

The lawsuit is not going anywhere, but what do you think about this situation after watching the video above? Does the passenger make any valid points?
