    Did you try to chase it back with a fork and a knife in your hands?
    Should've chased it back with a bow and arrow that's what

    Yes, Reeves are rare, and aggressive. So don't take it personally.

    Maybe they are long-lived as well as aggressive.

    "Rogue pheasant attacks villagers

    The pheasant is thought to have escaped from a private menagerieA rogue pheasant is believed to be behind a series of attacks on unsuspecting walkers in Wiltshire.Residents of Bishopstone, near Salisbury, have reported six assaults by the fowl over the past six months.The bird is thought to be a Reeves Pheasant, a rare Chinese variety that was probably hatched in captivity.Farmer Edward Draper said he had spoken to fellow villagers who had come across the bird, and heard stories of attacks first hand."Normally they are very placid birds, this one seems to come from some distance away and attack people and peck at you," he said.

    This is so funny!

    Pheasants are very territorial creatures and I think you stepped into its territory and it gave you the chase

    Well at least this tells me my fears weren't unfounded. I can't believe this breed of pheasant is so unpleasant and terrorising. I just can't believe how randomly we came across this rare pheasant

    Literally the two of them corned me into bushes and I was almost trapped and I had to run really fast between them to get away. Then they chased us really fast and wouldn't go, I honestly thought they were gonna trip me over and peck over my whole face

    Yes I think so too because the minute we got a certain distance from the spot where we found them they stopped chasing. They wanted us off their turf
