I personally believe all animals can be emotionally supportive … even a lion or something! Have you ever seen videos of people playing/cuddling with lions, or other apex predators, as though they’re domestic animals? It can happen .. I think that’s emotional support.
So, for United Airlines to deny a woman’s PEACOCK on board because it’s “not an emotional support animal” … well I guess it’s all up to them.

@kumathedestructor took this great shot of me at #newarkairport today. Spent 6 hours trying to get on my flight to LA 😤🐣 (after following all required protocol) Tomorrow my human friends are going to drive me cross country! Keep an 👁out for us! 🌈 #bestroadtripbuddy #dexterthepeacock
A spokesperson for United Airlines said, “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.”
Use this as simple as ‘heads up’ just in case you are bringing your peacock on a plane.
