Former UK gangster offers reward to catch peacock

Former gangster turned actor David Courtney, 63, is offering a reward to help catch his peacock after it escaped and ran amok. Seconds after bringing the new pet home it flew out of it's roofless coop - with Courtney not realizing the exotic bird could fly. Now the peacock, named Percy, is ruling the roost with neighbours being woken up at 4am by his mating calls. The bird and it's poop has appeared on top of people’s roofs, cars and gardens after escaping seven weeks ago. “I just had no idea that they could fly - I thought it was like a chicken or something." Courtney sees the bird twice a day.
