The RSPCA is appealing for the owner of a lost peacock to come forward. The spectacular bird was found in Westford, Wellington in Somerset on Saturday. An inspector picked the peacock up and took it to RSPCA West Hatch Wildlife Centre in Taunton where it is now being cared for. It is not known where the peacock could have come from originally as there are not any well-known estates close by that keep the birds.
Somebody should be missing this peacock. They can’t fly very far but do sometimes hop from building to building so it’s likely to have only travelled a short distance of a mile or so. Most peacocks in this country are owned so we’d like to be able to reunite this one with its rightful owner. The peacock has missing tail feathers but this can sometimes happen naturally as the bird moults. If you recognise this bird or know who owns it you can ring the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
