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.
