PALOS VERDES, Calif. (CNN/SPCA) — Investigators believe a killer is among them, strolling the lush streets of a coastal California community, on the hunt for another victim. A police sketch is circulating around town, along with a detailed description: a white man in his late 50s or early 60s, last seen wearing a white shirt and aviator glasses.
His motive: aggravation. And his victims: peafowl — also known as peacocks.
So how did the peafowl get there?
A wealthy land developer brought them to the Rolling Hills community of Palos Verdes a century ago and kept them as pets until his death in 1937. Many of the birds and their offspring escaped, and their descendants make up the current peafowl population.
