Anyone lose a peacock? One was found roaming in Champlin

If it's yours, Champlin PD would appreciate you let them know.
Lost peacock

Police in Champlin were presented with an unusual avian conundrum this past weekend in the form of a lost peacock.

The distinctive bird was found "roaming the neighborhood" in the area of the 1100 block of Gettysburg Ave. N.

"Yes. It's a peacock," Champlin PD said on its Facebook page, issuing an appeal for anyone who lost their peacock to call them on 952-258-5321.

Strangely enough, it's not the first loose peacock reported in Minnesota in recent times.

In 2018, a peacock by the name of "Dave" went missing from a hobby farm in Annandale, with his owners believing he was on the lookout for a girlfriend.
