A peacock escaped from Boston's Franklin Park Zoo Monday morning, and a police officer used his phone to help capture the bird.
Police in the area were approached around 6 a.m. with a report that the animal had gotten loose. Officers encountered "an extremely large, slightly intimidating, and quite beautiful" male peacock, authorities said.
One of the officers who responded found a peacock mating call on his cellphone and used it to lure the bird into a fenced-in yard.
