UNITED denies woman emotional support peacock…

Birds of a feather may flock together, but United Airlines recently shot down one traveler’s request to bring her emotional support peacock on a flight departing Newark Liberty International Airport.

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. Photos of the unusual scene were shared to Facebook by travel talk show The Jet Set, sparking online commenters to both condem and champion United’s decision.

United’s decision to deny the peacock comes on the heels of Delta’s controversial crackdown of support animals.

TOURISTS ‘SCARED OUT OF THEIR BRAINS’ AFTER ARREST FOR PORNOGRAPHIC IMAGES

“Unbelievable, this has to stop now!!” one user wrote.

“I’ll take the majestic peacock over the 5+ dogs that have attacked my coworkers just this past holiday season,” another supposed airline staffer fired back.

The news comes on heels of Delta’s controversial crackdown of emotional support and service animals. On Jan. 19, the airline announced forthcoming restrictions in hopes of curbing an abuse of policy and an 84 percent increase in ill animal behavior such as urinating, defecating, biting and attacks on flights.

It is not clear if the woman pictured in the above photo is the owner of the peacock, or whether the pair made it to their intended destination.
