Putting the Peacock Before the Horse
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.
