Martha Stewart is grieving. Some feathery family members were lostThis weekend. Snoop Dogg’s friend and lifestyle icon shared the shocking news that her prized peacocks had been brutally attacked by coyotes. “broad daylight.”Stewart shared the video with an unusual soundtrack choice. It was Marvin Gaye’s seminal bedroom song. “Let’a Get it On.”Stewart says she doesn’t know why the song was chosen, but it works for peacocks because of their natural nature. However, it’s a bizarre addition when talking about coyotes tearing them apart in daylight.
“RIP beautiful BlueBoy. The coyotes came in broad daylight and devoured him and five others including the magnificent White Boy any solutions for getting rid of six large and aggressive coyotes who have expensive tastes when it comes to poultry??”Stewart provided the caption.
Many will be aware that chickens, peacocks, and other fowl can be vulnerable to predators in nature. Their only enemy is coyotes. They must also contend with dogs, cats and owls. Although a pie pan can help, there are often no other options than to leave your birds alone in the face of all that nature has to offer.
Stewart is happy to report that the peacocks she lost were only a fraction of her large flock. According to TMZ she has at least 21 and the photo below clearly shows that she’s been involved in the avian community for a long time. She has an idea to protect these flamboyant birds.
“We are no longer allowing the peafowl out of their yard, we are enclosing the top of their large yard with wire fencing etc,”Stewart added, adding a note to her soundtrack for the video. “And by the way i do not have any idea how the marvin gaye music found it’s way. to this sad post but when Blue Boy was alive it would have been perfectly appropriate.”
Stewart has shared many looks at her peafowl past, and how the males are always parading when the opportunity presents itself. “It’s that time of year!!! My male peacocks are out strutting and the females, Peahens , are taking note,” She wrote on an earlier post.
