Thanks a lot, Toronto housing market. I can't afford any of these homes! Also, I am a peacock.

Toronto, which blessed the world with the unbelievable tale of the IKEA monkey, was naturally captivated by the fowl's feat, and of course someone had to make it a Twitter profile.

YouTube user Nick Moses uploaded a video Friday (embedded above) of the escapee, and Twitter users shared photos.





Nicole Ware, a Toronto Animal Services spokesperson, said "something gets out of High Park" every year, according to CTV News. So hang tight for next year's installment of Toronto Animals Breaking Free™. (Not actually trademarked.)

Will the authorities catch the feathered bandit? We'll let you know when (or if) they do. In the meantime:
