Between this and the baby ducks...it's a shit day to be a bird :(
A California man has been arrested on suspicion of deliberately running over and killing two wild peacocks in northwest Los Angeles last month, police said.

Floyd Belton, 61, turned himself in on Tuesday and is facing two counts of animal cruelty, KABC-TV reported, citing the L.A. County sheriff’s Lost Hills station as its source.

Police began looking for the suspect after surveillance footage surfaced. The incident wasn’t caught a camera, but a witness told police she saw the driver hit the birds moments later, according to the station.

Residents of the Chatsworth Lake Manor community – about 45 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles – alleged that the driver of a silver pickup truck intentionally hit the birds on a road.

I always wanted a few peacocks. Love their call. I don't think the neighbors would like it though. Peacock calls are like bagpipes or accordions: people either love it or hate it.
When I was 12 and we first moved into this house, the farm across the road had peacocks. Every night as the sun started to set, they would start screaming. To me, it sounded just like a woman yelling for help. I kept begging my dad to go do something.
He drove me over there the next day and showed me the birds.i got to pick up feathers. From that day forward, I loved them.

There are wild peacocks in California?
Peafowl like to have a large territory so will roam and easily become semi feral. . I have two neighbors with lots of acreage who have had them for decades, and they roost high up in trees, are not pets at all, but not afraid of humans. They are as tough and smart as wild turkeys. Peafowl are very good at avoiding predators. They eat anything and poop hugely so it's good they like to roam the acreage.
