Peacock tries to pick a fight with taxi -- and even chases after it

A male peacock, in all its splendour, seemed to be trying to attack an SMRT cab -- and even gave chase when the taxi sped off.

This video was posted on June 6 on Jukin video, showing the bird at what looks like the pick-up point outside the Singapore Zoo, refusing to move away even when the cab driver horned at it.

The peacock ruffled its feathers and pecked at the cab, as if it was picking a fight with the vehicle.

Two staff in green polo tees are seen trying to shoo the peacock away, while also fearing that it might attack them instead.

The antagonistic bird even chased after the taxi when it finally sped off.
