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 Monday and was spotted roaming the streets of the borough.
Zoo director Jim Breheny said the AWOL fowl was found Wednesday morning in the garage of a local business and safely captured.
The peahen, a female version of a peacock, had been examined by veterinarians and seemed to be fine, Breheny said.
The Bronx Zoo's peacocks and peahens wander freely but usually stay inside the zoo.
