Residents of one Marion County community are complaining about noisy neighbors they say they've dealt with long enough.
However, these aren't your typical neighbors.
Residents say it started with only two peacocks, but now has multiplied into about one hundred.
They say the birds are noisy, messy, and destructive and they would like to see them removed.
Bellview resident Alisha Fox says, "It's just kind of getting aggravating and old because there is just so many and you can't do anything about them!"
Peacocks are considered by the Florida Department of Agriculture to be domestic animals agencies like Florida Fish and Wildlife aren't responsible for getting rid of them even when they've taken over an entire neighborhood.
