SRSLY NYC Zoos? Get it together!!
A peacock flew the coop today from the Central Park Zoo and remains on the loose on the Upper East Side.
The bird, a male, escaped around 9 a.m., a zoo worker told The Post.
The peacock drew about 100 onlookers this afternoon as it remained perched on a fifth-floor window at a building near East 65th Street and Fifth Avenue for about five hours.
Zoo workers and Parks Department officials were at the building in the hope the bird would fly to a lower floor so that it could be rescued.
The Bronx Zoo got tons of (possibly unwanted) press when a cobra and a peacock managed to escape this spring — and make some impressively witty twitter accounts.
Someone's copying the @BronxZooPeacock!
The Central Park Zoo Peacock has jumped right on that bad wagon as well. You can follow him under @BirdOnTheTown.
