I, for one, welcome our new Galliformesian Overlords

The surveillance footage then shows the suspected thief parking in front of the house. Moments later, he is seen wearing a red T-shirt and with a cigarette dangling from his mouth, as he walked toward the driveway and in the direction of a handful of peacocks.

“He came onto my property, he went onto my porch, very disturbing,” said Jasper.

The concerned homeowner showed 7News several peacock feathers left behind in the wake of the ensuing showdown between man and fowl. “Blood and flesh on the tips,” she said.

The perpetrator then gets to work. The video shows him attempting to grab several peacocks, but the birds fluttered out of his grasp.

Moments later, in what resembled a chase out of a Road Runner cartoon, the man is seen running across the sidewalk with a peacock tucked under his arm.

He then sprinted to his truck and sped away — with an angry mob of peacocks on his tail.

“All the other peacocks, they ran behind him,” said Jasper.

7News cameras captured Jasper as she filed a complaint with City of Miami Police officers.

“We do want to investigate it,” said Miami Police Cmdr. Freddie Cruz.

As someone who once unfortunately lived near a peacock - the neighbors likely paid the thief.

I'm not sure why some people bother with 'security cameras' and then go cheap. If one even thinks that maybe it might someday be used for identifying a suspect, get a quality camera.

The presence of a camera may scare some ne'er do wells off. But for those that are bold, only quality gear is acceptable. This avoids the 'that ain't me. It's somebody that looks like me but that ain't me' dance.


Not that agree with birdnapping, but... Those peacocks all belong to that woman? And the run around loose in the street? I've heard one noisy bird and can't even begin to imagine what the neighbors go through. I'd want all but one or two gone. And a laryngectomy or two done.

Was interesting to see the birds chase after the thief. Would that be some kind of flock defense?

I know someone who was chased multiple times by a neighbor's peacock. It also attacked some family gathering in their backyard. The birds terrorized the neighborhood and allegedly damaged property. One day the peacocks disappeared and the owner went door to door asking if anyone had seen them.

Best case scenario is they were bird-napped and taken to the countryside.

Worst case scenario is they ended up on someone's grill.

It remains a neighborhood mystery to this day.

The neighbors needed an attack cat like the one that went after a dog that grabbed a toddler years back.

I like that the flock appeared to run after the man. It might have been the bird. If they caught up to the guy would they have attacked him in order to free the bird? If A gaggle of geese would concern me.
