Passenger and her emotional support peacock denied entry on flight

As reported at Live and Let's Fly, earlier this week United Airlines refused the woman's request to bring the large bird onboard. Spokeswoman Andrea Hiller says the issues had been explained to the passenger three times "before they arrived at the airport".

The peacock also failed to meet the size and weight guidelines of the airline. Dexter is a rescue pet who belongs to Brooklyn-based artist Ventiko, who documents the attractive bird's life on Instagram.

These days, it's not uncommon to see a dog or cat at the airport, however, spotting a peacock at the ticket counter is.

Sanjeev KumarUnited Airlines employees recently stopped a passenger from boarding a flight with her emotional support animal in tow, because the animal was a peacock.

But United Airlines clearly felt the artist was winging it with her claims about the peacock and wouldn't allow it to board, despite her offers to buy it an extra seat.

An Emotional Support Animal (ESA) is a companion animal, that a medical professional has determined, which provides benefit for an individual with a disability. Although any domesticated living creature - including rabbits, mice, hedgehogs, rats, ferrets, pigs and birds - could be therapeutic to a person, these emotional support pets are accommodated far less than service animals. The new rules will come into effect on 1 March.

Meanwhile here at home, Air Canada will only allow dogs to board as recognized emotional support or psychiatric service animals.

However, the airline declined to board the bird due to "health and safety concerns".
