The Problems with Peacocks


Residents of a Makaha housing complex are complaining about peafowl (Peacock and peahen) killings done by their resident manager with a state permit. The permit was granted to the manager after some residents complained about the screeching calls.

However other members of the community say the peafowl are not a problem and want the flock to be preserved. The Wild Bird Rehab Haven and Animal Rights Hawaii have both received dozens of calls from people wanting to save the peafowl.

"This seems -- yet again -- to be another effort to use unacceptable, uncivilized, unworthy and hidden means to arbitrarily kill as a means to solve a problem that was created by humans in the first place," wrote Mari Nakamura.

  no complaint from me...  
he got a damn state permit. That means it must have been THAT bad that he went and took classes so he could get it.(i'm assuming you have to, because I know to deer hunt you have to)

I guess what this will come down to is where the majority is.

  I think it would taste like turkey.  
What? If they're going to kill them they might as well eat them.

Did you apply at the Department of Land and Natural Resources? You might be able to get a trap and release permit.
