A New York woman's attempt to bring her emotional support animal on a cross-country flight didn't quite fly with United Airlines.

The woman, a performance artist who goes by the name Ventiko, tried to board the Newark-to-Los Angeles flight with her emotional support peacock named Dexter. United Airlines says it warned the woman three times that the peacock wouldn't be allowed to board the plane, but she ignored them and came to the airport with the colorful bird perched on her shoulder. She was finally turned away and now Ventiko says Dexter is being driven to California.
