We visited the Dinosaur Park on the 14th July 2012 with our 18 month old son and we had a pleasant morning, until he was attacked by a peacock outside the gift shop. The Peacock charged at him and knocked him to the floor. He was left with a scratch on his temple near to his eye. He was very scared and so were we, he is an innocent an inquisitive 18 month old baby and the attack could have been much worse if it wasn't for the fast actions of my mother and I.
Members of staff from the gift shop witnessed at least some of the attack along with another member of staff who had been petting the Peacock and chatting to the women in the guest shop just moments before. This member of staff briefly asked if our son was ok and then walked off towards the in door play area, he didn't seem to care much. The young women from the gift shop just stood in the doorway smiling.
We attended to our son and when we returned we were alarmed to see the Peacock was still wandering around in front of the gift shop with young children approaching it. We were disgusted that no one had made any attempt to confine the bird.
Our son could have been seriously injured and the staff showed little sympathy.
The staff that witnessed the attack made no attempt to contact a senior member of staff of first aided to check on the well being of our son.
The peacock was left loose to roam about after the attack. He could have attacked another toddler.
Please please beware of the Peacock if you visit the park.
