A while back, I went to my favorite bakery in Brooklyn. When I opened the door, I was bewildered to discover ... a peacock.

Yes, it was an adult peacock, its plumage full and colorful. And it was taking up the entire shop.

Now, I know what you're thinking: "How is it possibly okay to keep these wild animals as pets?" That's what I was thinking too. So I asked the peacock's owner, who explained it was a rescue of some sort. I didn't totally understand, and I still don't, but I had to tell someone about this and share the photos. So ... Enjoy?
