After residents cry fowl: Miami to relocate pack of peacocks

MIAMI (The Miami Herald) — A pack of peacocks that has wreaked havoc on a Miami neighborhood will soon be relocated after city commissioners sided with residents and agreed to have the birds taken away. The commission’s unanimous vote Thursday night was a big win for residents who’ve complained that the birds have taken control of their North Grove neighborhood, mating into the night, pooping in large piles and scratching cars as they travel in packs of 20 to 40 or more. One resident told commissioners the massive infestation of peacocks have ruined the quality of life for him and his wife.
