When you think of an emotional support animal you wouldn't be alone in immediately thinking of a dog or cat. These incredible animals help settle physical, psychiatric, or intellectual disabilities, but people have to apply for special permits so that they can fly with them.
So, you can imagine people's shock and surprise when someone rocked up to Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey with an 'emotional support peacock'.
The passenger even had a ticket for the huge bird but, unsurprisingly, United Airlines didn't allow it onboard. United copped a fair amount of criticism last year for some terrible events - but I reckon we can agree this was probably not a suitable animal to have next to other passengers.
An airline spokesperson has told Fox News: "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."
America has the Air Carrier Access Act, which allows people who require an emotional support animal with them to travel on flights, as long as the pet has the right documentation, isn't a threat and doesn't interfere with others.
It's hard to tell whether a peacock would be a suitable animal to have in a confined space, 33,000 feet in the air.
People on social media couldn't believe what they were seeing.
