Mating Peacock Drawing Gunfire in Eastern OregonTim King Salem-News.com
Peacock Problems in Central Oregon are not what you call an everyday situation.
(BEND, Ore.) - One really buff and sexually charged peacock near Bend, Oregon, has been causing a fuss; the bird belongs to a local resident named Joy Graves who is trying everything possible to get the bruiser back into a contained environment.
She hasn't been able to nab the extremely striking bird, and some gun toting residents decided they want to shoot it.
Local law enforcement is aware of the situation.
As it stands, Joy has until the first of the coming month to capture the elusive male peacock.
So Graves and her family are searching for an answer, while witnessing something most people never see; that is a peacock of this stature going through the stages of life in a fairly natural environment.
This isn't your everyday problem, if you have special skills and are in the area and interested in helping, please send an email to Joy Graves at email@example.com
