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, a Miami Beach High graduate, insists her doctor approved her hamster as a certified emotional support animal, and had the medical certificate to prove it when she went to the airport.
She's bought the adorable rodent after developing a large but benign growth in her neck last year.
'She was so loving. It was like she knew I needed somebody,' said Aldecosea, a six-feet tall volleyball star who helped lead her school, Miami Beach to back-to-back National District Championships and was named Most Valuable Player, before joining Barry University in Florida where she joined the volleyball team.

She wouldn’t want me on the jury. Just sayin’.
Next if her doctor actually certified the hamster as an emotional support animal, his or her license to practice medicine should be revoked.
And finally, enough with the emotional support animal crap.
Seeing eye dogs or specially trained dogs to help paraplegics, fine, but if you cant travel or go to a restaurant, store, etc., without your emotional support hamster, peacock, pony, snake or yappy Chihuahua, then perhaps you should just stay home.
Hooray for Spirit Airlines!!
Hamster or not: all i know is i hate Spirit Airlines and hope it goes out of business.
Spirit is horrible.
Note to all single guys at her college: this one is a lunatic. Beware.
I’ve never flown them I’ve really learned to love Allegient. Everything is so cheap, right down to the seats, but for me it is comfortable, fast and cheap. I get just what I want, and at a darned good price.
The seats amaze me. They are VERY comfortable, yet they are basically padded fiberglass shells that don’t recline. The advantage for me is that I have more leg room than in most other airlines’ planes. I’m 6’1” with 36” inseam. It matters.
Today’s classic example of lib insanity on full display....she’s crazy.
She loved her hamster so much that she killed it by drowning, so she could fly.
Couldn’t she just find an emotional support python to feed it to?
‘She was so loving. It was like she knew I needed somebody,’
I’m sorry for the poor girl’s medical trauma, hopefully someone that really IS loving reaches out to her.
LOL. Thanks, I needed a feel good story. What a strange/weak society we have become.
She should be brought up on charges of cruelty to animals.
Barry University, Miami Shores, Florida is a private Catholic university.

Has she never heard of ‘bad luck’? Sometimes, it’s nobody’s elses’ fault except maybe our own. Sometimes we have to do dumb things and learn by the experience. This is not worth any time in any courtroom. Next flight, bring a stuffed Bunny-Rabbit. “Bunny” won’t even need his own plane ticket.
Oh, I bet that sucker made it down to the sewers alive. It will now marshal an army of rats and seek bloody vengeance on humankind...
She has a "'medically certified' emotional support animal" - a dwarf hamster. A DWARF? It must be the size of a golf ball only furry.
"While she was panicking...She was scared. I was scared. It was horrifying trying to put her in the toilet,' Aldecosea said. 'I was emotional. I was crying. I sat there for a good 10 minutes crying in the stall.'"
She's a "volleyball star"-- what happened to tough athletes? Aren't women supposed to do anything a man can do? Panic over a dwarf hamster? The Wonder Woman movie taught us that.
I think I see a problem. It's on her left arm...
Good luck finding future employment now, cupcake. You really shot yourself in the foot with this one. I can just see the hiring manager looking her up on the web and finding this story, then conducting an interview: "OK, Belen, your resume looks good. Please tell me a time when you faced a stressful situation and how did you handle it?" LOLOL.
