AN­I­MAL WATCH

Putting the Pea­cock Be­fore the Horse

The Washington Post Sunday - - Metro Week -

GER­MAN­TOWN, Ger­man­town Road, 15900 block, March 13. A “rather large” pea­cock en­tered an in­door arena at a private school and seemed to be in no hurry to leave. A fe­male stu­dent at­tempted to en­ter the arena with a horse, which re­fused to go inside the build­ing, ap­par­ently star­tled by the color­ful bird. The stu­dent con­tacted a school ad­min­is­tra­tor, who called an­i­mal ser­vices. An of­fi­cer leashed the pea­cock and es­corted it to a trans­port van. The pea­cock was taken to the Mont­gomery County An­i­mal Shel­ter. Un­less an owner claims it, it will be put up for adop­tion.

K Among cases re­ceived re­cently by the Mont­gomery County An­i­mal Ser­vices Di­vi­sion.
