Two peacocks running loose, causing traffic problems near Cincinnati

Police and wildlife officials are on a quest to catch at least two peacocks who are wandering Butler County and causing traffic problems.

The pair of peacocks were fist spotted in April near Bypass Ohio Four and Hamilton-Mason Road in Fairfield Township, about a half an hour north of Cincinnati. They've also been seen walking in the road in various other parts of Butler County and last week, were seen at a rest stop off I-75 south near the Monroe exit.

Officials say the birds are frequently in the roadway and could cause a traffic hazard. Troopers from Ohio State Highway Patrol as well as Fairfield Township officers and animal control officials have all tried to catch the birds, without success.

It's not clear where the peacocks originally came from. Peacocks are sometimes kept as pets. Officials ask anyone who spots the birds to call police.
