Passengers bring emotional support animals on flights with them all the time, so when one passenger made note on her Frontier Airlines reservation that she was bringing one with her, the airline staff thought nothing of it. When she arrived, however, they realized the woman found her emotional support not though a dog or cat...but through a squirrel.



She had not warned Frontier she'd be bringing a squirrel, and the airline was forced to remove the woman due to their policy regarding rodents (none are allowed on board).

The world demanded more details as word got out there was a squirrel being forcibly removed from a plane.

Video footage shows the passenger being removed. Once she was off the flight, the rest of the airline attendees were reportedly let back on the plane.

Before being removed, the passenger tried to stand her ground and demand "her rights."

Unfortunately for the passenger, Frontier Airline's policy on rodents is quite clear:

Twitter was quite amused by the strange incident:

Even some squirrel-based accounts chimed in!

A word to the wise: always check to make sure your squirrel is welcome before you take it to a public place.

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
