Support animals have become very popular among flyers, but this may be the most odd support animal is the history of aviation which makes sense that it wouldn’t be allowed on the flight! 

United Airlines turned away an emotional-support animal,  a full size peacock at a New Jersey airport this weekend as airlines have been considering new rules when it comes to these 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.”

A group called “The Jet Set” a travel and lifestyle show first shared pictures of the peacock on their Facebook, it’s not clear if the passenger ever made it to their destination.
