7 On Your Side: Help find a home for Long Island's Penelope the peahen
Nina Pineda has the details.

SYOSSET, Long Island (WABC) -- A wild wayward peahen is ruffling some residents' feathers in one suburban Long Island neighborhood.

Homeowners in Syosset say that last May, the beautiful white and turquoise-colored peahen suddenly showed up and staked a claim on the neighborhood.

They named her Penelope, and at first, she was a novelty.

But now, they say she's become a nuisance.

The elusive peahen leaves droppings all over the place while roaming in their backyards, on their porches, on tree branches, and even on their respective roofs.

The residents have called out the town animal control and a number of animal rescues, but so far, none have been able to corral Penelope.

Now, they're asking 7 On Your Side for help to catch and relocate her to a farm or zoo.
