Of all the bizarre creatures spotted on the New York City subway, none ruffled as many feathers as a peacock seen in Brooklyn.
Subway rider Matthew Chayes tweeted that a man walked onto the train with his majestic bird in hand Thursday afternoon.
The pair were riding the uptown 3 train in Brooklyn, heading to a bar, according to reports.
It hasn’t been confirmed whether the peacock was alive or a taxidermy, but Twitter commenters conjectured it was stuffed since it stood on a wooden perch, according to am NewYork.
As the photo suggests, fellow subway riders remained unfazed. After all, this wasn’t the first peacock that graced the New York City subways.
A woman was seen walking a peacock on a leash just one month earlier in June.
