Further investigation revealed that the peacock isn't someone's pet or even alive. It's stuffed. The guy holding it actually caught wind of the pic online as it started to go viral yesterday, and took to Reddit to further explain what the hell he was doing schlepping a dead peacock on public transit. As it turns out, it's not even his. He was simply carrying it for its owner, the blonde woman standing on the right in the pic. He runs the bar Weather Up in TriBeCa, which she owns. To prove it, he snapped a pic of himself at the bar with the bird serving as mascot of sorts in the background.
