Well, they found the guy. He seems like a real winner rolleyes

Staten Island pa turns in son after sicko attack on peacock

A Staten Island man was arrested yesterday in the cruel beating of a wild peacock, who was stomped and choked last week in a Burger King parking lot.

John Potts, 32, shouted, “I’m killing a vampire,” as he attacked the beautiful bird Thursday morning in Tottenville, police and witnesses said.

Potts, of Surfside Plaza, was arrested after a shovel-wielding fight yesterday with his dad, who then turned his son in for the bizarre animal beating.

The male bird’s delicate body was crushed, and most of his vibrant feathers were destroyed. The injuries were so severe the bird had to be euthanized.

“His father is the one who gave him up,” a police source said.

Potts was charged with aggravated cruelty to animals, a felony, and cruelty to animals, a misdemeanor, police said.

He had been arrested on unrelated burglary charges Friday after a Surfside Plaza neighbor returned home and found Potts inside, police said. He was carrying a knife and was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, police said.

Yesterday, cops were called to the home he shares with his father about 7 p.m., after Potts threatened his dad with the shovel, police said. He fled and headed to the beach at Sprague and Surf Aves., where he was arrested about 8:30 p.m., cops said.

The wild bird had wandered into the Burger King parking lot early Thursday and perched on a parked minivan. He was so tame employees were able to feed him bread and water. Bystanders tried to stop the attack, but Potts ran off before police arrived.

Has anyone heard any follow up to this story?  Have they found out what the guy was on or suffering from?  (He didn’t mix Absinthe and Mountain Dew did he?  That’ll do it every time . . . )

Kill!!!! vampire

In fact, the trouble began after the loon killed the peacock.  It came back as a zombie muttering “Bird brains!  Bird brains!”

I knew this story sounded familiar!  My Granny Bunting often took a tern telling us this rhyme:

“Who killed Peacock Robin?” “I,” said the Loon,
“With my bow and arrow, I killed Peacock Robin.”
“Who saw him die?” “I,” said the Fly,
“With my little eye, I saw him die.”

Edit:  And me, I’m such a sap!  I thought it was a yellow-bellied blood sucker.

Could very well be schizophrenia. Guy was perhaps in a psychosis. Then such things happen.

It’s a condition that people often think means Multiple Personality Syndrome, I’m not really sure but I think it somehow detaches the person from reality, hallucinations things like that.
