Is it still possible to tame two week old red golden pheasant chick as a pet?

Yeah, but most of them will 'turn' on the owner, too!
Ever wonder why you don't see zebras being riden like domesticated horses? Because they are not domesticateable.
Ever seen a Cassowary that was a 'pet'? Same reason....and they will kill you if they can. :old

With all due respect, how is a harmless pet pheasant as dangerous as that Cassowary?

Maybe the owner of that Cassowary should have done a better job of taming that bird so that it wouldn’t have to be upset.

No, cassowaries are just anger-filled birds that will gleefully murder you if you so much as look at them funny. It's in their nature -- they are extremely unsociable, aggressive birds because they are used to things trying to fight and kill them.
It is not the owner's fault that the bird is angry; it is in the bird's nature to be aggressive.
