Neighbors Are Divided Over Feral Peacocks In Vancouver

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with the war of the peacocks. Neighbors are divided over feral peacocks who've lived for years in a neighborhood in Vancouver, Canada. Some love the peacocks. Some hate them but exercised Canadian restraint for years until a man's father slipped on peacock droppings. The peacock was in a tree, so Parminder Brar cut down that tree. The Guardian reports he now faces a fine of up to $10,000 for chopping without a permit. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
