Just set it free.

No need for euthanasia.
Aldecosea, a 21-year-old college student who was heading home to Florida for surgery on her neck, says even though she was told over the phone that hamsters were permitted as emotional support animals, a Spirit employee told her otherwise when she showed up with Pebbles at Baltimore's airport for her flight in November—and then, says Aldecosea, suggested she flush it down the toilet.
Aldecosea did, and now PETA says both she and the Spirit rep who allegedly told her to flush the rodent should be held accountable. "Flushing a living being down a toilet is not only cruel but also illegal," a PETA VP tells USA Today. "This must have been a horrific, terrifying death."
A bit of good news for Aldecosea, per Goodman: She's got a new replacement rodent to soothe her.
