United Toughens Requirements For Emotional Support Animals

United  Airlines is toughening requirements for emotional support animals after denying a peacock a flight at Newark International Airport.  United already required 48 hours notice and a letter from a mental health professional.  Thanks to Dexter the Peacock and his handler, the airline will now require an enhanced letter from a mental health professional, proof of vaccination and a vet letter declaring the animal will not pose a threat to the health and safety of passengers.  Delta issued new regulations before last week's peacock incident with an increase in comfort animal requests from passengers.
