ARCADIA A peacock broke bottles of wine and Champagne worth about $500 Monday after making its way into an Arcadia liquor store.

Well, I heard that you-a female peacock just looking for a little prosecco, or maybe a nice rosé-got into a little trouble down at the local liquor store this week!

Forget about the bull in the china shop - based on a recent incident in the USA, the phrase should be amended to "peacock in a liquor store". "I didn't know they could actually fly high but it flew up above the counter and it landed here on top of the ice cream freezer", he said. He tried to kick a peacock, but the intruder attacked him first, and then took off on the shelf.

An animal control officer showed up on the scene to coax the bird out, but as the video clearly shows, he was out of his league.

However this fine-feathered peafowl was having none of it, leading the officer on a 90-minute goose chase around the store, trashing much of its stock in the process.

Ghanem tried to help the peacock find the door but instead the bird perched up on top of the wine shelves. "The more he kept on trying to use the net, the more it kept on flapping its wings and knocking everything over", he added. That's when the hilarity ensued, Ghanem said.

The pair eventually managed to tame the peahen and take it outside, unharmed. "I'm like, "You break, you buy, dude".

While a peacock in a liquor store may seem unusual, peacocks are common in the area, where they were introduced by the city's founder in the early 1900s, according to AP.
