Surveillance footage shows the bizarre moment a man runs down a Miami street with a peacock tucked under his arm as a mob of angry birds gives chase.

The peacocks had gathered in the Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami, Florida on the morning of Sunday, March 11, reported WSVN.

A porch camera shows a man in a red T-shirt, cigarette in mouth, saunter up the driveway of the house owned by Virginia Jasper, after parking up on the street. He then chased the peacocks on the driveway of the house, trying to grab them, before moving on.

“He came onto my property,” she told WSVN. “He went onto my porch. Very disturbing.”

Later footage shows him running to his pick-up truck with a peacock under his arm.

The local police say they want to investigate potentially on the grounds of animal cruelty.
