Not something you see everyday

On the way home today on HWY 24/27 just east of HWY 1 ran across this walking down the side of the road. I believe it is an Emu? Are people raising these now?

Yup

People are raising them now, and apparently they are worth a lot of $$$.
Someone has to be looking for that thing!

Well the incident didn't turn out well right after I got a couple of quick pics the dam thing walked right out into traffic. Kinda wished I wouldn't of stopped now, maybe it would of stayed off the road.

My buddy Dale raised emus for a while. They are incredibly stupid and meaner than shit. A coyote got into their enclosure and they stomped it into mush. When he got rid of them, it took an emu wrangler hours to get them into the trailer.



An egg he gave me.

My buddy has one, actually has had several over the years. He's in Suffolk. He says 'it's a face only a mother can love, and I'm not the mother' but he gets a kick out of them. Sometimes literally.
