Have It Your Way, Unless You're a Vampire Peacock

I blame The King for this senseless New York City peacock murder:
NEW YORK (AP) -- A peacock that roamed into the parking lot of a Burger King in New York City was beaten by a man who insisted it was a vampire. Animal control officials in Staten Island say the bird was beaten so fiercely that most of its tail feathers fell out and it had to be euthanized.

The seven-year-old male peacock wandered into the restaurant parking lot and perched on a car hood last week. Charmed employees had been feeding it bread when the man appeared. A restaurant worker says the man grabbed the bird by the neck, hurled it to the ground and started stomping it. She says when he was asked what he was doing, he responded, "'I'm killing a vampire!"'

Employees called police, but the man ran when he saw them.
Poor peacock...of course, the crazy bastard man was lying. Who the hell kills a vampire by grabbing its neck and stomping on it? If he stabbed its heart with a wooden Chicken Fry, his story might have some credence.

UPDATE: Maybe it was this guy.
