Interesting dilemma here, Between a hamster and flight to an important appointment:
A. Walk back out of security checkpoint and to the arrival area, find some animal lover to take care of pet, exchange info and contact later for retrieval
B. Hide hamster as the third boob or in carry-on, inside boxes with poked holes, at risk of the animal suffocating
C. Let hamster loose into the wilderness, join other rodents, starts a family and save money for their offspring's college degree
D. Cowabunga the ninja hamster

And she chose D....Maybe she wanted closure now at the expense of guild? pain and suffering for the mind to wonder about the pet's outcome?

Anyone can figure out her choice deserve next Nobel prize in high energy physics.

That was my go to option.
Clearly she can't think for herself.... let me correct that phrase: She can't think [period]

Baltimore, end of November.
Let hamster loose is also a death sentence.
Who can't think?

Exactly. I wouldn't like its chances even in the summer for that matter.

That the airline accommodate her and allow Pebbles to fly.

Not to be mean or anything, but why not insert Pebbles in one of her orifices? It could work, right? Face With Tears Of Joy

Ya but that assumed the problem away.

Policy said no rodent, hence the dilemma.

I'm clearly not a fan of the lack of consumer protections in the airline industry.
They've hose us for decades, and we bend over and say "Thank you sir, may I have another"?

The no-rodent policy is to protect other consumers' "feelings".

So political correctness killed Pebble, not the young women? she merely gave the rodent a clean closure, for both of them.

OP. The airline had discriminatory policy against rodent, hence can't board.

I believe I was trying to get you to qualify your use of vapid terminology.
