peafowl overpopulated

too much peacock need to capture them

1999年,一場颱風把臺灣金門縣的孔雀養殖籠舍摧毀,14隻藍孔雀自此在這個島嶼形成一個大群族,對當地生態構成威脅。為了管制藍孔雀的數量,政府除了設計陷阱捕捉牠們,又鼓勵當地居民捕捉來食用或換取獎金。

In 1999, a typhoon destroyed peafowl cages in Kinmen county, Taiwan; 14 indian peafowl escaped and formed a large population in this island, putting the local species in danger. In order to control the indian peafowl population, the government has set up special traps to capture them, and also encourage locals to catch them for consumption or to redeem price.
