Emotional Support Peacock Denied On United Flight

Emotional support....peacock? Yes, the facts are correct and a woman at Newark Liberty International Airport tried to board a United flight with her emotional support peacock but was denied. 

The unidentified owner says she bought a second ticket for the peacock but even that wasn't enough to let the bird fly. 

"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," said United in a statement.

Photos of the peacock at the airport had the internet split and commenters both condemned and championed United’s decision.
