Woman Claims She Flushed Hamster on Spirit Air's Advice

David Ovalle- Student flushes'emotional support hamster down toilet claims Spirit Airlines told her

A college student says she was pressured to flush her emotional support hamster down the toilet after Spirit Airlines refused to let her bring it on a plane, according to the Miami Herald.

A student who flushed her hamster down the toilet when Spirit told her she couldn't fly home with it, is now attempting to sue the airline for causing emotional distress. Aldecosea insists that she was initially told that Pebbles would be allowed to fly, only to be stopped at the gate.

With no one to come pick up the tiny hamster and no rental cars available, Aldecosea and Pebbles were stuck at the airport - until, Aldecosea claims, an airline employee suggested letting Pebbles go or flushing her, a claim the airline has denied. I was emotional. I was crying.

She told the newspaper she cried in a restroom stall for 10 minutes after feeling that she had no choice but to flush Pebbles. In January, an emotional support peacock named Dexter was barred from traveling on a United Airlines flight, despite having been bought its own ticket. Spirit has strongly denied that any of their employees told the woman to harm her pet.

Aldecosea's lawyer, Adam Goodman, told BuzzFeed News she thought flushing the hamster would put it out of its misery faster than releasing it, where it would inevitably die anyway.

The animal helped comfort her before she knew the growth was benign, especially since she didn't know many people in Philadelphia, Goodman said.

Spirit offered her a voucher for a free flight to certain cities. "It is incredibly disheartening to hear this Guest reportedly chose to end her own pet's life". According to the Herald's report, further delays on her trip home were not advisable because of a medical problem.

He said they are examining whether to file a lawsuit against the airline.

Aldecosea, a Miami Beach High graduate, insists her hamster was a medically certified emotional support animal, which she got after developing a large but benign growth in her neck past year.

Aldecosea said she flushed her beloved pet only after trying six different rental vehicle agencies.

A representative for Spirit Airlines admitted they mistakenly told Aldecosea that Pebbles would be allowed - but that no employee ever recommended disposing of the hamster in a toilet.

Spirit accepted Belen had been given misinformation, but a spokesman added: 'To be clear, at no point did any of our agents suggest this guest (or any other for that matter) should flush or otherwise injure an animal'.

Last month, United Airlines denied a passenger who wanted to bring her emotional support peacock on a cross-country flight, stating that the animal did not meet size and weight standards.

But Sari Koshetz, a spokeswoman with the U.S Transportation Safety Administration (TSA), said the TSA doesn't have an issue with carry-on hamsters.

Most major U.S. airlines, however, don't allow rodents on flights over concerns about health and safety.
