‘Emotional support’ peacock hits the road
The peacock that wasn’t allowed on a flight at Newark Airport as an emotional support animal is hitting the road.
Ventiko, a Bushwick artist, owns Dexter the peacock.
According to Bushwick Daily, she has been seen around the Brooklyn, New York, neighborhood walking Dexter.
She told the Daily that Dexter living with her is temporary and he will likely be relocated to the Dominican Republic.
She has been documenting their trip cross country on Instagram. Dexter has attracted more than 10,000 followers.
