1. Re: Peacocks

The same thing that happens every several years. A trapper will be capturing "a large number" and relocating them on the mainland. I may be slightly off on the numbers, but right now there are probably more than 100 peacocks/peahens wandering around, and the plan is to reduce this to maybe 20-25. Since they are protected on Longboat, they will multiply again over time. As far as I know, the peacocks/peahens are all in the Longboat Village area at the north end of the island.
