Dexter arrived at Newark Liberty International Airport last week alongside his owner, a Brooklyn artist named Ventiko, ready to jet set to Los Angeles.
Only one kind of bird went in the air at Newark Airport this week, after an airline did not allow a passenger to bring her "support" peacock on a flight with her.
"This animal did not meet guidelines for a number of reasons, including its weight and size", Hiller said in a statement sent to NorthJersey.com.
WHAT?! We're discussing emotional support animals on an upcoming episode!
Earlier this month, Delta Air Lines announced that passengers who want to bring service or emotional support animals aboard must show proof of vaccinations 48 hours in advance of the flight. It was unclear if the passenger and peacock made it to their destination. And most importantly-where can I get an emotional support peacock?
"In order to ensure we provide the best service to everyone onboard our flights, consistent with government rules we now require these customers to provide documentation from a medical professional and at least 48 hours advance notice".

It was an electric touch to the Pelicans' hottest stretch of the season, polishing off their seventh in over the past eight games. A few weeks ago, they had to see the Saints lose a playoff game in the most gut-wrenching fashion possible .
United told Business Insider that passengers need to "provide documentation from a medical professional and at least 48 hours advance notice" before bringing an emotional support animal onto a flight.
The airline said that it was reviewing its existing policy and planned to share more soon.
Delta initially faced backlash for its decision to tighten restrictions, but it's possible other airlines will follow suit as they try to crack down on passengers who abuse the support animal provision and use it to travel with their pets for free. They must also prove that the animal is trained well enough to handle a flight, according to Travel + Leisure.
"Unfortunately, untrained animals can lead to safety issues for our team, our passengers and working dogs onboard our aircraft", the airline said in a statement. And in October 2016, Daniel, an emotional support duck, flew from Charlotte to Asheville, N.C., according to the Washington Post.
