Houston, Texas (Houston Chronicle) — A peacock who had recently taken to terrorizing female neighbors was twice Tased by authorities and then fatally shot by his owners this week in northwest Harris County.
A Harris County Sheriff's deputy was interviewing a female witness Wednesday when the male bird, nicknamed Meanie, began attacking the woman's legs outside the house at Kluge and Dale near Huffmeister.
The deputy made the decision to shoot the colorful bird twice with a Taser. The peacock wasn't fazed by the jolts. With the consent of the deputy, owner Riley Richards had his son-in-law kill the peacock with a rifle.
