This peacock was brought in from the cantonment area after it came and hid inside the Colonel's house. The bird used to come and feed in their garden for a few years now, developing a bond with them. It trusted them enough to hide in their house and turned out to have a broken leg. The bird was given treatment, physiotherapy and care for more than two months and after a complete recovery it was released back at their house itself. The bird immediately flew up to their balcony which was his favorite roost. .
The family was very happy to see their peacock back at his usual place, the bird too seemed to be thrilled. We were so glad we could release our national bird back to the urban wild and that too at a place where it is loved and cared for.
