Charge Belen Aldecosea With Animal Cruelty

This petition had 2,128 supporters

I am asking that Belen Aldecosea be charged with animal cruelty for flushing her support hamster, Pebbles, down a toilet. This is no different than someone putting a cat in a bag and tossing the cat into a lake. Animal cruelty is animal cruelty, and that hamster suffered a horrible death. And let's imagine (it is hard to do) that instead of Pebbles the support  hamster she had Charlie the support kitten. I GUARANTEE you that she a) would have never went to the media, and b) she would be facing criminal charges as we speak.


Belen Aldecosea, 21, of Miami Beach, Fla., told the Miami Herald she was considering legal action against the airline after she flushed her dwarf hamster, Pebbles, down the toilet on Nov. 21, 2017, at the suggestion of a Spirit Airlines employee.

The young woman said a Spirit Airlines employee advised her to either set the rodent free, into the wild, or flush it down the toilet. Aldecosea tried to rent a car instead, but was too young to do so. Her friends also lived too far away to come pick up Pebbles, so, running out of options, she did what she thought was most humane: She flushed her beloved pet hamster down the toilet.
