Seeking sanctuary status to protect a neighborhood peacock
NEW ORLEANS - A New Orleans City Council member says she wants to have a neighborhood added to the list of the city's bird sanctuaries to protect a popular peacock.
Nobody knows where "Mr. P" the peacock came from. He's irritated some in New Orleans' West Carrollton area by pecking at the finish on cars.
But others like having the bird around and are resisting efforts to have him removed.
Council member Susan Guidry has introduced an ordinance that would the area where Mr. P is frequently seen the city's 15th bird sanctuary. That would make it illegal to harm the peacock.
