First, the student tried to rent a car or find a free seat in the bus, but due to the influx of tourists before the holiday, her idea was not a success. Belen couldn’t linger, because at home she had to undergo a medical procedure. Then the airline representative asked her to make a difficult choice: to let the hamster out on the street or drown in the toilet of the airport.

Not to condemn the animal to a slow death from the cold, she decided to «do everything quickly». Sinking, Pebls, she cried for 10 minutes and with a heavy heart went to Miami.

Now belém intends to sue Spirit Airlines for giving conflicting information, which led to the death of the animal.

A potential defendant acknowledges that the girl was denied boarding with the hamster but denies that she forced him to drown.

«Our agent is not in any way did not offer the guest (and any other client), to wash the animal or cause him any harm. Very sorry to hear that this guest decided to take the life of their pet,» said the press Secretary of the shipping company in an interview with Fox News.

Who is right will determine the court. Anyway, the airline acted against the rules, since the transport of hamsters allowed by law on emotional support animals.

The Department of transportation also has nothing against them.
