Emotional support animals are companions that a medical professional has prescribed as helpful to someone with a disability. These animals are usually dogs, and can fly aboard planes with their humans. But this woman had different ideas, and brought along her emotional support peacock for her flight to L.A. from Newark Airport.
This is Dexter the emotional support peacock, trying to board a flight from Newark to L.A.
He was denied a seat on the flight, even after his owner, conceptual artist Ventiko, offered to pay for his seat
Emotional support animals are usually dogs, sometimes cats. So it was a surprise to see a peacock at the airport
This event also helped to uncover one of the most awesome Instagram accounts out there
Based in Brooklyn, Dexter and Ventiko like to go on walks together through New York
Their story started when Ventiko purchased Dexter for an art installation
And she found a home for him afterward
But knowing that Dexter was living all alone there, she had to take him with her
And they bonded immediately
Now they’ve been together ever since and he works with her on her art projects
And if you’re still wondering how they’ll get to LA, Ventiko said they’ll go on an epic drive across the country
