While some residents say they love the birds, others have complained about the hundreds of peacocks roaming free in the streets.
The birds have been heard shrieking in the night and seen damaging gardens and vehicles.
Jose Landeros, manager of the The Original Tops restaurant said that the peacocks are “part of the city of Pasadena.”
“I’ve been working here for 36 years, and they’ve been here for that long,” Landeros told CNN. He said that most of his customers enjoy them, but cleaning up their droppings can be a problem.
The L.A. County Department of Animal Care and Control and County Council is to report back to the board in 90 days with a draft ordinance prohibiting peafowl feeding in public places. The Board of Supervisors will then review the ordinance and vote on its adoption.
