Missing Bronx Zoo peahen corralled in nearby garage
BRONX (WABC) -- There are no ruffled feathers at the Bronx Zoo after a wayward bird has returned.
A green peahen, the female counterpart to a peacock, is back at the zoo after wondering away on Monday.
She was corralled in the garage of a nearby business Wednesday morning.
Zoo officials say the birds are harmless and free to roam, unlike the poisonous cobra that disappeared from the zoo for six days.
The peahen already has 3,000 followers on Twitter.
Director of Bronx Zoo Jim Breheny issued the following statement:
"We thank our Bronx neighbors and the New York Police Department for helping us retrieve our peahen this morning. We recovered her in the garage of a local business where she was safely corralled. She has been examined by our veterinarians at our Wildlife Health Center where she is resting comfortably. Preliminary indications are that she is in good condition. We will keep our tradition of free-roaming peafowl at the Bronx Zoo. We are confident that after this peahen's recent adventure, she won't want to wander from her home at the zoo."
