A trio of pets are apparently making themselves more than at home in one Germantown neighborhood, to some chagrin.
According to the Germantown police report:
A resident in the W217 N9700 block of White Horse Drive called police last week to report three peacocks belonging to a neighbor are constantly on his property, leaving behind droppings on the roof, cars and patio furniture.
The owner of the peacocks was warned and advised about keeping the birds on her own property.
An officer was able to corral the peacocks and have them slowly return to their residence.
