United Airlines wouldn't allow a traveler to bring her emotional support peacock on a flight departing Newark.
I had no idea emotional support peacocks were a "thing"
Live and Let Fly reported earlier this week that even though the unidentified woman claimed that she had a second ticket for the peacock, the airline denied her request. [Source]
A spokesperson for United said:
"This animal did not meet guidelines for a number of reasons, including its weight and size. We explained this to the customers on three separate occasions before they arrived at the airport."
