Aldecosea, a Miami Beach High graduate, demands her specialist endorsed her hamster as a confirmed passionate help creature, and had the medicinal testament to demonstrate it when she went to the airplane terminal. Eventually, a Spirit employee allegedly suggested that Aldecosea release the hamster outside or flush it down an airport toilet. "It was horrifying trying to put her in the toilet", Belen toldThe Miami Herald. According to the Miami Herald, a woman flushed her "emotional support hamster" down the loo at the airport after she was told that the animal would not be permitted to fly.
She told the newspaper she cried in a restroom stall for 10 minutes after feeling that she had no choice but to flush Pebbles.
Recently, a prominent Brooklyn artist ruffled feathers at Newark Liberty International Airport when she was refused permission to board a UnitedAirlines flight to Los Angeles with Dexter, her emotional support peacock.
While she was freezing, she charges that an individual from Spirit staff recommended she either let Pebbles go free outside or flush her pet down the can.
Spirit spokesperson Derek Dombrowski admits an employee misinformed Belen about her hamster's travel rights, but vehemently denied the flushing suggestion. Aldecosea and Pebbles were allowed to check in for their flight without a hitch (emotional support animals are technically allowed to fly at the discretion of the airline in question). She also reportedly did not have time to arrange for someone to care for her pet while she was gone. Aldecosea thought it would be inhumane to let the animal freeze outside and made a decision to flush her in an airport toilet, she told the Herald.
Goodman will represent Aldecosea should she decide to follow through with a lawsuit.

"She [Pebbles] was scared".
But when she did arrive at the airport in Baltimore, Maryland, she was told the hamster couldn't come on board. After contacting six rental auto agencies and even considering taking a Greyhound bus home, which would have taken days, Belen believed flushing her pet was the most humane option.
Missing a flight can be quite a hassle for your average passenger, but for Pebbles - an emotional support dwarf hamster owned by Belen Aldecosea - it was downright deadly.
It's up to airlines whether they allow hamsters on board.
Aldecosea is considering suing the airline, and has secured an attorney.
"Rodents of any kind are not allowed on board for health and safety reasons".
Airlines have been introducing policies that require passengers to provide additional assurances that emotional support animals are medically certified and able to behave on an airplane.
