I will try to make this short. My 3 peafowl were spooked when there was a coyote attack & luckily escaped ..unfortunatly they managed to fly beyond our 40 acres , into the next town over..which is Southbridge. well We looked everywhere & couldnt find the peas ..spoke to neibors..ect, nothing. Then a couple of weeks later I called the Dog officer & left a message. Come to find out the one in the next town over had found & captured them . She refuses to give them back becuase she seems to think they are exotic & you need permits & to be licensed ..NOT. she also asked where they were kept..umm gee..howabout in the HUGE barn..that its impossible to miss right behind the house where she left her little note..its bigger than house. Not too happy with her..she seems to be incinuating that my birds are neglected or something.. so now shes bringing some sort of inspector to my house ..for what..theres nothing illegal..nothing that needs a permit ..nothing exotic here. Besides..she doesnt have jurisdiction in my town..she is the officer of another town ..not mine..she has SOME nerve holding my peas hostage as if im breaking the law. she is denying them of their home, stressing them out. theyve been here since they were eggs...ugh..what a nitemare. hmm..maybe she just wants the peas for herself???
