Martha Stewart’s pet peacocks eaten by coyotes

Martha Stewart mourned the loss of six peacocks that were brutally killed by a marauding group of coyotes hanging around her Connecticut property, the TV personality and businesswoman said in a sad social media post Saturday.

“RIP beautiful BlueBoy,” Stewart wrote on Instagram. “The coyotes came in broad daylight and devoured him and five others, including the magnificent White Boy.”

The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection warns that coyotes are common throughout the state and advises homeowners to be wary of attacks, listing several “Tips for Preventing Coyotes Conflict” on its website, including never allowing of pets to roam freely, especially at night.

Stewart has long been known to own a number of peacocks and other animals on her property.

“Any solutions for getting rid of six large and aggressive coyotes that have an expensive taste when it comes to poultry?” Stewart posted. “We are no longer letting the peacock out of their garden. We enclose the top of their large yard with wire fencing etc.”
