A New York artist was left spitting feathers after United Airlines told her she couldn't board a plane with her "emotional support" peacock.
In a video published by travel site JetSet, the woman is seen wheeling her case across the departures hall in Newark airport with the large bird perched atop her shoulder, as observers ask: "I'm not kidding, this woman is wrangling her peacock into the airport... What the ****, New York?"
Woman - Artist - Photographer - Ventiko - Right
The woman, conceptual artist and photographer Ventiko, reportedly said she had a right to bring the rescue bird onboard as a "comfort animal". The idea is that furry and feathered beasts can help calm nervous travellers.
