This is just….bizarre. What’s more bizzare, is that it’s under “top news” in my feeds, instead of “strange news”

Man Beats Peacock He Says Was Vampire


NEW YORK (AP) - A peacock that roamed into a fast-food restaurant parking lot was attacked by man who vilified the bird as a vampire, animal-control authorities said.

Beaten so fiercely that most of his tail feathers fell out, the bird was euthanized, said Richard Gentles, a spokesman for the city’s Center for Animal Care and Control.

“It’s just unbelievable that someone would do something to a poor, defenseless animal and do it in such a cruel fashion,” he said.

The peacock, a male several years old, wandered into a Staten Island Burger King parking lot and perched on a car hood Thursday morning. Charmed employees had been feeding him bread when the man appeared.

He seized the iridescent bird by the neck, hurled it to the ground and started kicking and stomping the creature, said worker Felicia Finnegan, 19.

“He was going crazy,” she said.

Asked what he was doing, she said, the attacker explained, “‘I’m killing a vampire!’”

Employees called police, but the man ran when he saw them. Authorities were looking for the attacker, described as being in his teens or early 20s.

It was not clear how the bird made his way to the Burger King, but a Staten Island resident who raises peacocks said he had given some to a person who lives near the restaurant.

Yeah because you can just kick vampires to death.

And vampires are birds that sit on cars and eat bread from Burger King employees.

I don’t know about vampires, but I can see why someone would want to do this to a peacock.  You have one living behind your house cawing at 4am sounding like a cat dying, and you’d know what I mean.

Note: I am being sarcastic and not actually advocating beating up peacocks.

It’s food, they should just eat it.

I guess there are going to be a few Burger King employees with peacock feathers in their hats now.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

I wonder if they had a special that day of a peacock sandwich, fries and a large drink.
