Peacocks gone feral, says MSPCA

Peacocks on Island have become feral.

That's according to the Manx SPCA which took to social media earlier this week.

The charity says peafowl are a growing problem across the Island, and although they're native to India - the animals have adapted well to the Manx climate. 

The MSPCA says its receiving more and more calls about peafowl causing a problem - in areas such as Douglas, Santon and Port Erin.

It says if the number of the birds continues to grow, other native birds are likely to be affected.

As a result, the charity is urging all owners of peafowl not to breed or feed them, unless they have ths space to keep the offspring.
