Thai killed by peacock

Vichai Thongto, who lived near Bangkok, was killed by his pet peacock. Mr Thongto, 30, was feeding the family's four caged peacocks when the sole male, "Yoong Thong" - Golden Peacock - clawed at his head. A scan showed a blood clot on Mr Thongto's brain; he died on Monday. His father, Somchai, said he still loved Yoong Thong.
