Woman with squirrel kicked off plane speaking out

The woman who was not allowed to fly because of her emotional support squirrel is speaking out. 

Cindy Torok is the squirrel's owner. She was traveling to visit family in Cleveland. Torok says that she got Daisy to help with severe anxiety.

Torok had no problem getting through security but when she got to her seat on the plane, there was a problem.

Everyone was made to get off the plane and police arrived to escort Torok off the plane.

The squirrel was screened the same way a cat would be screened and the TSA does not have any specific rules against squirrels.

It is up to individual airlines to decide what animals they will or will not let on a plane. Frontier Airlines does not allow rodents on a plane.
