Run­away pea­cock is on the loose

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - PROVINCE - BY ANCELENE MACKIN­NON

It might be un­usual to see a pea­cock run­ning across the high­way, but if you hap­pen to spot him, his name is Tango.

His owner, Kevin Cook, said Tango ran away Sun­day af­ter­noon, and has been seen dart­ing back and forth on Route 2 near the in­ter­sec­tion with the Blue Shank Road.

Cook is go­ing through the woods on both sides of the road search­ing for Tango, and is us­ing pea­cock sounds on his mo­bile phone and putting out dry dog food to try lur­ing him back. Tango loves dry dog food. He said Tango doesn’t know how to get back home, and pea­cocks are fast run­ners, mak­ing them dif­fi­cult to catch.

He got his pet from an Is­land breeder just a few days ago. He now re­al­izes he should have kept Tango in a box pen for a cou­ple weeks to pre­vent him from fly­ing, but he and his wife opened the gate be­cause he seemed calm.

“I just want him to come back safely,” said Cook.

He owns the Honey Tree Nurs­ery in Norboro, and can be reached on his cell at (902) 4396104 if any­one has in­for­ma­tion on Tango’s where­abouts.
