'Peacock crossing' signs to go up in Union Gap

Associated Press
UNION GAP, Wash. -- The city of Union Gap plans to install "peacock crossing" signs to alert drivers on streets where the birds have darting into traffic.
The city also is asking the state Fish and Wildlife department for help with about a dozen descendants of tame peacocks that escaped years ago.
KIMA reports some have been scratching cars when the peacocks apparently mistake their reflection as rivals for the attention of peahens.
Some residents also say their high-pitched mating call disturbs the peace. The city is working with homeowners to relocate the peacocks -- if they can catch them.
