NEW YORK A peacock that roamed into a fast-food store parking lot was savagely 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 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," Gentles 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 the creature to the ground and started kicking and stomping the animal, said worker Felicia Finnegan.

"He was going crazy," said Finnegan, 19.

Asked what he was doing, she said, the bird-beater explained, "'I'm killing a vampire!"'

Employees called police, but the attacker 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.

Jacksonville, Florida — A peacock that roamed into a liquor store parking lot was savagely attacked by man who vilified the bird as a Florida Gator hat thief, animal-control authorities said.

Beaten so fiercely that most of his tail feathers fell out, the bird was euthanized, said Ric Tootall, a spokesman for the City Center for Animal Care and Control, but said he figured it would rise from the dead to haunt more Gator fans!

"It's just unbelievable that someone would do something to a poor, defenseless animal and do it in such a cruel fashion, said a bystander".

The peacock, a male several years old, wandered into a I-295 Red Dot parking lot and perched on a SUV hood this morning. Charmed employees had been feeding him Cutty and water when the man appeared.

He seized the iridescent bird by the neck, hurled the creature to the ground and started kicking and stomping the animal, said worker Wanda Wannabe.

"He was going crazy," said Wannabe, 19.

Asked what he was doing, she said, the bird-beater explained, "'I'm killing a hat thief, so he won't do it again, the *&%#@?!*&$%(!"'

Employees called police, but the attacker took off with a blue, orange and white MasterCraft X-1 in tow when he saw them. Authorities were looking for the attacker, described as being in his late 40's or early 50's.

It was not clear how the bird made his way to the liquor store, but a Brunswick, GA resident who has peacocks visiting his residence said he had given one to a person in Jacksonville who lives near the Interstate.
