ORLANDO, Fla. – A woman was escorted off a plane by police at the Orlando International Airport after bringing a squirrel on the plane.

According to WKMG, the woman indicated she was traveling with a support animal but didn't say it was a squirrel. When the crew was made aware of the squirrel, the woman was asked to get off the flight, but she refused. Orlando police were called and all of the passengers had to deplane so officers could "deal with the passenger."

It's not clear on what charges she faces, if any.

In a statement provided to WKMG, Frontier Airlines said, "Rodents, including squirrels, are not allowed on Frontier flights."
