Escaped Peacock Flies Back To NYC Zoo

Filed under: ZooBirds

Well, that was quick.

The Peacock that escaped form the Central Park Zoo last night flew back to his home this afternoon.

Is life as a free bird was short, but at least it lasted longer than Hugh Hefner!

Maybe he wanted to show the pigeons what a REAL bird looks like. We're sure they're soopa jealous.

Check out the video to see the fabulous bird showing off on 5th ave!

Escaped Peacock Out On The Town In NYC

Filed under: TwitterZooBirds

It Was Fun While It Lasted @Bronxzoopeacock

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.

Sassy Runaway Peacock Is Returned To The Bronx Zoo

Filed under: ZooBirds

It Was Fun While It Lasted @Bronxzoopeacock

It Was Fun While It Lasted @BronxZooPeacock!

The Bronx Zoo's second escaping animal of the year has been put back in her habitat.

Zoo Director Jim Breheny said she was found Wednesday morning in the garage of a local business and safely corralled.

Breheny said the peahen, a female version of a peacock, has been examined by veterinarians and seems to be fine.

Glad to hear she's healthy, but - quick question Jim, are there zoo keepers at your zoo?!

Keeping up with the missing Bronx Zoo cobra and peahen's in the news and on twitter has been entertaining, but it kinda seems like escaping from your zoo is about as easy taking a stroll… in a zoo.
