High Park peacock tires of Roncy and returns home

The High Park peacock has returned home. Well, sort of. The majestic bird was spotted in the bison pen at the zoo earlier today after spending a few days exploring the Roncesvalles neighbourhood. Animal Services plan to let the bird find its own way back to the proper cages.

It's both comforting and a shame to see the bird return home. On the one hand, it's far safer for the peacock at the zoo, but there's a little part of many of us that liked to see the animal out on the loose, teasing its would-be captors.

Don't take it too personally, Roncesvalles. At least the peacock made a point of eating lunch at the Ace.
