Dexter the “Emotional Support” Peacock was denied access to a United Airlines flight.
According to NBC News, “United Airlines turned away an emotional-support animal — a proud peacock — at a New Jersey airport this weekend, as airlines have been considering new guidelines for service and comfort animals. United Airlines said in a statement to NBC News that the peacock ‘did not meet guidelines for a number of reasons, including its weight and size.'”
In the above Instagram post (from Dexter’s own Instagram account… Because apparently, every animal in the world gets an Instagram now), Dexter’s owners managed to get him to their destination via road trip. Which is honestly what they should have done in the first place.
