Martha Stewart mourns the loss of six peacocks who were ‘eaten’ by coyotes

Martha Stewart mourns the death of her pet peacocks after they were “devoured” by a pack of “aggressive” coyotes.

The 80-year-old TV personality announced the sad news on Instagram on Saturday (July 23), sharing a video of one of her pets, Blue Boy, who passed away.

In the short clip, Blue Boy can be seen fanning his feathers at their home in Katonah, New York while Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” plays in the background.

“RIP Beautiful Blue Boy,” Stewart captioned the post. “The coyotes came in broad daylight and devoured him and five others, including the gorgeous White Boy.”

Soliciting advice from her followers, she asked, “Any solutions to get rid of six large and aggressive coyotes that have expensive tastes when it comes to poultry?”

“We no longer let the peacocks out of their garden; We close the top of their large yard with wire fencing etc.

“And by the way, I have no idea how Marvin Gaye music got to this sad post, but when Blue Boy was alive it would have been perfectly appropriate.”

The animals’ deaths come shortly after Stewart revealed in November 2021 that her peafowl and peafowl were “freed” as she granted them “freedom of daylight — aka the run of the farm.”

“They must return to their safe palace at dusk for the night when the wild predators make their rounds of the chicken coops, pigeon house and goose yard,” she wrote on Instagram.

“The peacocks are so friendly and sociable and clean that they are welcome anywhere. And they are beautiful.”

Stewart also keeps horses, Sicilian donkeys, carrier pigeons, geese, and more than 200 chickens and roosters on the 156-acre farm.

In May, Stewart broke the record for the number of peacocks she owns (up from 21) after the New York Post claimed she had 16 birds.

On Twitter, Stewart branded the article “fake news.”

“I actually have 21 of these gorgeous birds whose home is immaculate,” she said at the time.

She also took issue with the author’s comments that peacocks are extremely noisy, writing that her pets are “fun to hear.”

“You don’t smell. You are so clean! Their voices are loud but so much fun to hear. They’re so kind,” she added.
