Student allegedly flushes emotional support hamster, then blames airline

Student allegedly flushes emotional support hamster, then blames airline

A spokesman for the airline vehemently denied she was instructed to flush the pet down the toilet, but acknowledged the airline mistakenly told her that Pebbles was allowed on the plane in the first place. According to USA Today, Belen Aldecosea says that the airlines caused her to flush her emotional support hamster down the toilet.

But when she arrived for her flight, the 21-year-old said the airline wouldn't let Pebbles come with her.

Aldecosea's story comes two weeks after a similarly high-profile instance in which United Airlines refused to allow a performance artist to bring her "emotional support peacock" on board a flight from New Jersey to Los Angeles.

Aldecosea, said she could not live with herself if she let the tiny hamster go out on the cold and the thought of the hamster being run over was too much for her, so she took the other option and flushed her flush her beloved pet down the toilet in an airport toilet.

But Ms Aldecosea said she is considering suing Spirit over the conflicting instructions that pressured her into making the decision. But Aldecosea contends she had no one available to help, and an employee suggested she release the hamster outside or flush it down a toilet.

Emotional support animals have made the headlines recently after Delta, a top internal airline in the U.S., announced a crackdown.

Aldecosea said her doctor certified her hamster as an emotional support animal and she had the certificate with her to prove the authenticity of it.

Belen Aldocosea claims the airline suggested she flush the hamster down the toilet.

Spirit confirmed that a reservation representative "did misinform the guest that a hamster was permitted to fly as an emotional support animal on Spirit Airlines". She said she then sat in a bathroom stall crying for 10 minutes.

While the extent of Spirit's culpability can be debated, there's no question that Aldecosea brought Pebbles to the airport on the airline's explicit say-so, which in my mind gives Spirit substantial responsibility for finding a creative, non-fatal solution to the program.

"She was scared. I was scared".

Because of her desperation to get home and unable to rent a hire auto, Aldecosea says she had no other options because she did not want to simply free the animal into the wild for it to die in the cold.

She was a student at Wilson College in Pennsylvania at the time and is now a student in Texas, he said.

The airline refused to allow Dexter to get on board the aircraft, despite the passenger going so far as buying the huge bird its own ticket for the flight.

"Hamsters are welcome in our checkpoint", TSA spokeswoman Sari Koshetz told the newspaper. Most major carriers such as American, Delta and United, however, don't allow rodents over concerns about safety and health.
