United Airlines turned down a woman's request to bring her "emotional support peacock" on board a flight leaving Newark Liberty International Airport on Tuesday, according to Fox News.

"We explained this to the customers on three separate occasions before they arrived at the airport", United said in a statement, according to Fox News.

Dexter is believed to belong to Brooklyn-based artist Ventiko, who had bought a ticket for the exotic bird so he would have a seat.

Travel show Jet Set posted a video showing Dexter the peacock making his grand entrance.

"Yeah no, Im sorry but no". Photos on Instagram also show the peacock, with the bird being recognized as "Dexter". "I would much rather sit next to peacock than a screaming child or someone who falls asleep on my shoulder", another instagram user wrote.

There are all sorts of things that provide emotional support, from a cross hanging on a chain to a lap dog desperately barking whenever a stranger comes around, and it can be genuinely distressing when we have to part with them, even for a couple of hours. However, airlines can deny "unusual" service animals such as snakes and other reptiles, ferrets, rodents and spiders, the Washington Post reported.

Human passengers have tried to bring a menagerie of emotional support animals onto planes-not just dogs, but also pigs and ducks.

In an effort to crack down, Delta announced this month that travelers with emotional support animals would have to provide proof of the animal's training and a letter signed by a doctor or other health professional, certifying that the animal will comport itself well on the flight.
