Emotional Support Peacock Denied Flight Access

n case you missed it, "Live & Let Fly" reported earlier this week that an unnamed United Airlines traveler tried bringing her emotional  support peacock on a flight out of Newark's Liberty Airport. Her request  was shot down - even though she had a second ticket for it, but the  airline still denied the bird board because of concerns about passenger  safety.

United says the “animal did not meet the guidelines for a number of  reasons, including its weight and size.” But they also say this  shouldn't have been a shock as they told the customer that on three  separate occasions - in advance that her bird wasn't gonna fly with  them.

So what happened? The woman - now identified as New York artist Ventiko, says some "human friends" agreed to drive her and Dexter on the thousand mile journey. And are we shocked to hear that Dexter has his own Instagram account? Of course not.
