Police trying to place wandering peacock with owner
NEWTON, N.H. (AP) — Anyone missing a pet peacock?
Police in Newton, New Hampshire, say they found the peacock on Sunday. He was walking around residents’ yards and perched on their porches or railings in town and in neighboring Plaistow.
Police said some people called and said they felt trapped inside their homes, and so an animal control officer brought him in. A tongue-in-cheek Facebook post said the peacock was “terrorizing” residents.
Police said based on the area he was caught, and that his flight wings are clipped, he’s believed to be from the Newton, Plaistow, Merrimac or Haverhill area.
