Random Peacocks Are Roaming the Neighborhoods of South Haven
The peacock is a wild and exotic species, not unlike the Chicagoans who make South Haven, Michigan, their second home all summer. Unlike those Friendly Illinois People, the peacocks may not know when it's time to leave. Birds of a wide-tail feather are flocking together in the southwest Michigan coastal city.
The birds have apparently been running through neighborhoods throughout the summer of 2023. As we approach colder weather, the South Haven police department posted the following on Facebook concerning about the birds as winter approaches.
Reference the peacocks at large: South Haven Police Department is happy to work with any and all volunteer/rescue groups who intend to save these birds from the harsh winter months.
Although this is not a police matter we truly appreciate the assistance.
Please reach out to us and/or let us know if rescued. So far, we do not know identity of owners or circumstances.
