Authorities Search For Pet Peacock Shot With Arrow

  • Photo
LINN COUNTY, Iowa -- A pet peacock was shot with an arrow on Wednesday and authorities are investigating.

Linn County Sheriff Brian Gardner said a deputy responded to a home on Mount Vernon Road Wednesday. Gardner said the homeowner keeps several peacocks, chickens and goats at her residence. At some point Wednesday morning, one of the peacocks was shot with an arrow.

"It does not appear it was a life-threatening injury to the bird," Gardner said. "The bird is still mobile. It still flies."

Gardner said when the deputy left the property, the woman had not recovered the bird. She intended to put out food with hopes of luring it back to her home so the animal could receive treatment. Gardner said when the arrow is removed, the sheriff's department would take it in as evidence with hopes of finding out who shot the bird.

"She does not know who did this," he said.

Gardner said the bird had not been confined to the woman's property and she does not know where the bird was when it was shot. The woman was advised that her birds must remain on her property.
