After eight days on the run, the male Lady Amherst Pheasant seen strutting throughout Warwick was recently captured and returned to his owners. Kim Matteson, who said her pet took flight after her husband tried to feed him, received multiple phone calls of sightings from all corners of Warwick – including the T.F.

At last report, he’s resting comfortably with his partner, Harriett.
