Posted: Updated:

A woman flying United was told her emotional support peacock would not be allowed on the plane -- that's right, emotional support peacock.

The Jet Set reports a woman brought her peacock with her to the Newark Liberty International Airport. She planned to bring the bird along on the flight as an emotional support animal and even bought the peacock its own ticket. 

Delta has a specific policy regarding service and support animals. The rules say passengers have to prove their emotional support animal is well-trained, provide appropriate documentation to the accessibilities desk, and give 48 hours notice before the flight. It also says the animal should sit on the floor in front of the passenger without protruding into the aisle.

It's not clear if this passenger and her peacock followed all of these regulations before being denied entry to the plane.
