Peacock Hitches Ride with Pair Along Pa. Roadway

peacock-face.jpg Animal lover Jerry Dimick was driving with a friend in northeast Pennsylvania when he saw a beautiful peacock standing on the side of the highway, cars speeding past. He was determined to find the bird a safe place to stay. He picked it up and, and with no room in the back of his pick-up truck, Jerry planted the peacock in the front seat. “The bird was sitting in between the two of us. He sat there,” Dimock added. So far, the peacock’s new foster father has had no luck with the Game Commission, animal control, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, or the local zoo. ( TV-16 w/ Video)


  1. If there is a way to get a message to Mr. Dimick – Lake Tobias ( is a wildlife sanctuary in Central PA (Halifax, PA) that may be able to help him – I believe they have peacocks there and if they couldn’t take the bird, they may be able to help him find a good home or give care guidance for the bird.

    Just wanted to offer that 🙂
