RUN! Girl sprinting from peacock at NC Zoo becomes internet sensation

NC girl running from a peacock at a Wilmington area zoo has taken the internet by storm.

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – A little girl sprinting from a Peacock roaming around the Tregembo Zoo in Wilmington, NC is taking the internet by storm.

The photo was posted by Reddit user bwaxse saying, “Our trip to the petting zoo did not go as planned.”

The image has garnered nearly 2,000 comments and has become the center of the latest meme trend, and people of the internet haven’t disappointed with their creativity.

You can find everything from movie posters to being part of a scene with Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean.


Someone even put the little girl running in the Olympics, with a different kind of peacock chasing her in the background.

According to TODAY, the girl’s mother said she went to pet the bird when it did a quick 180 and squawked, inciting terror in the young girl. She started running like she was being chased by the boulder in Indiana Jones.

This girl may now have a life-long fear of birds, but her future as a track star is looking good!
