Jealous peacock attacks blue cars

Like any male defending his patch, Ron does his best to banish potential love rivals.

Unfortunately, this fellow's a little confused about who his competitors are.

Ron, a peacock, has begun attacking any bright blue cars which drive into his territory at a stately home.

In his latest assault, on a blue Lexus, he scratched and dented every panel - causing £4,000 worth of damage.

Ron's owner, Sir Benjamin Slade, said: "He doesn't seem to be bothered by other birds, but the peacock-blue cars just drive him wild.

"He suddenly becomes aggressive and can't control himself."

Ron lives with 12 other peacocks on the baronet's 13th century Maunsel House estate in North Newton, Somerset.
