WANDERING PEACOCK FINDS NEW HOME

Self-confessed animal lover Anthony heard the RSPCA was looking to rehome a Peacock and contacted the animal charity to offer the beautiful bird a new home.

"I have a 10-acre property in Wanneroo and I already own other animals so he will make a great addition to the farm," Anthony said.

Anthony, who is a tiler by trade, has a passion for animals which he considers his hobby. Anthony has previously volunteered his time at the RSPCA.

The Peacock was found wandering in Westminster and was picked up by RSPCA Inspectors.

"Finding a Peacock was one of the more unusual jobs we have had to attend in recent months, but we are thrilled to hear he has found a loving new family," RSPCA WA Chief Inspector Amanda Swift said

"He's a beautiful bird, so it's wonderful news that he is going home to such a caring person on a large property and we understand his new owner has named him 'Gerald'," she said.

Most councils have regulations surrounding the keeping of exotic animals and non-native species, so it is best to check with your local council before acquiring a pet such as a Peacock.
