Police hunt for a 'feathered fugitive'

Posted: Updated:
Police are hoping they didn't ruffle any feathers when chasing a peacock that escaped a Toronto zoo.

After the animal escaped, it showed up in a Toronto neighborhood. Animal Services say they're working to capture it, but in the meantime, children are delighted by its surprise visit.

"We were riding back and then I was joking that I saw one, and then we actually came to one where people were standing and they were like 'there's a peacock and then we came to look... It was awesome!"

Authorities are warning locals not to approach or feed the peacock, but to instead call animal services if they spot it again.
