The male bird had been attacking 'everyone and everything' on a farm in Cambridge - until he found a female partner

They say that love conquers all – and that was certainly the case for a “terrorist” pheasant causing chaos at a farm in Cambridgeshire.
The male bird, who was once prone to chasing “just about everyone and everything”, has changed his ways after catching the love bug, according to his owner.
Anne-Marie Hamilton told the BBC that the pheasant turned up at Wood Farm, in Hail Weston, in March and proceeded to attack her, the dog, visitors and vehicles.
“He has pretty much had a go at everyone and was becoming a real pain,” she said.
But then something rather lovely happened.
Ms Hamilton told the broadcaster: “We were seriously thinking how to get rid of him, but last week he turned up with a hen pheasant.
"We've been terrorist-free for three days and I think it's her influence."
