A woman is crying foul after United Airlines denied her request to bring her emotional support peacock aboard a flight leaving from Newark Liberty International Airport this week.
The woman, who has not been identified, claimed that she purchased another ticket for her feathered friend when the airline turned down her request, Fox News reported.

A United Airlines spokesperson, however, claimed that the woman had been warned that her peacock would not be allowed on board.
“This animal did not meet guidelines for a number of reasons, including its weight and size. We explained this to the customers on three separate occasions before they arrived at the airport,” United Airlines announced in a statement.
