The zoo says the two peacocks were located and safely collected near the equestrian center in Fairmount Park on Friday morning thanks to a tip from a good Samaritan.
“A very helpful passerby saw the peacocks, contacted the zoo and remained at the site until our team’s arrival,” the zoo said in a statement.
The zoo says the birds appear healthy, but a little hungry, and have been examined by the veterinary staff. They are currently being housed behind-the-scenes.READ MORE: Funeral For Slain Officer, Delmar Police Cpl. Keith Heacook, To Be Held Monday
