Escaped Peahen Returns to New York's Bronx Zoo

NEW YORK -- A green peahen is back in the fold at the Bronx Zoo.

Weeks after a cobra escaped from her glass tank at the zoo's reptile house, the peahen made a break for it on Monday and was spotted roaming the streets of the Bronx.

Zoo Director Jim Breheny said she was found Wednesday morning in the garage of a local business and safely corralled.

Breheny said the peahen, a female version of a peacock, has been examined by veterinarians and seems to be fine.

The zoo's peacocks and peahens wander freely but usually stay inside the zoo.

The highly venomous Egyptian cobra was found last month in a dark corner of the reptile house, nearly a week after she went missing.

She was named Mia, for Missing in Action.
