I believe she had a ticket for the peacock.
She had offered to buy the peacock a ticket. One has to call UA at least 48 hours before to inform them of an ESA. She was told that the peacock was not allowed and still went to the airport anyway. UA would not sell her a ticket for the peacock.

One of my friends used to work with artists and she has met Dexter the peacock before. The woman got the peacock for a performance piece at an art fair in Miami, the peacock was not well behaved at the fair, running around, trying to escape, the "artist" gave the peacock to someone in Miami, then heard he was not being treated well, went down to get him out of guilt, tried to find some other place, then called him a fashion accessory in 2016, and now he is an ESA.

I like animals. I currently have two cats; in the past have had dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, a parakeet, and a salamander. There is NO WAY IN HELL I would sit next to an uncaged - or even caged - peacock on an airplane. Hasn't anyone ever heard them scream???

Beautiful, loud and temperamental birds; oh yes the first time I heard one scream I thought there was some sort of attack happening nearby.
