Really Bronx Zoo?
A fugitive Peacock has become the second animal to escape the Bronx zoo this year, evading all attempts to recapture her.
It is unclear how the brightly coloured fowl escaped the zoo, but determined handlers armed with nets were thwarted as the Peahen simply flew away when approached.
The New York Daily news reported the Peahen was spotted yesterday perching on top of a parked van a few blocks from its Bronx home. But as the net wielding zoo workers approached, the Peahen flew off, hiding in a nearby patch of tall grass.
Refusing to give up, the team crept to within a few feet of the animal, before she flew off again. God, that sounds entertaining.
The Peacock says she's looking to get more followers than @BronxZooCobra and thinks she deserves it. She said "For the record: I did a better job at escaping the zoo. #iactuallyleft".
Ouch, stung by a peacock.
