LOS ANGELES, Cali. (NBC) — A bird went on a bender on Monday inside of a Southern California liquor store.
Animal Control in Los Angeles County was called in to capture a peacock that made its way into a liquor store in the City of Arcadia.
As the bird tried to elude its capture, it knocked over several bottles of booze worth an estimated $500.
With a bird’s eye view of business below, customers were still coming and going — some even taking pictures with the bird.
The peacock was eventually caught and released at a local animal refuge.
Peacocks are a protected species.
In California, even feeding them comes with a fine of up to $1,000 and six months of jail time.
