ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - An escaped peahen wandering through Annapolis has evaded all efforts to capture it, rendering the efforts of neighbors, plumbers and gardeners to so far be futile.

The Capital reports (https://bit.ly/1FsFL07) the peahen escaped Crownsville’s Hidden View Farm about a month ago and was recently spotted two miles away in Annapolis.

Numerous attempts by local residents to catch the bird proved unsuccessful Tuesday.

The farm’s owner Richard Bradshaw says residents should not feed the bird because she will be less likely to return to her home.

Thus far the peahen has resisted some treats - the ones left inside baited cages.

The search was suspended around sundown Tuesday and was scheduled to resume Wednesday around Heritage Harbour.
