Rogue Emu Nabbed By Cops After Daring Escape From Farm

Yesterday morning, an emu made a daring escape from a farm in Haymarket, Virginia. The lanky bird’s taste of freedom was unfortunately brief, as local police were able to recapture it without incident.

While emus are sometimes aggressive, a spokesman for the Prince Williams County police department told the Washington Post that this particular one was calm, perhaps because of his hopefully glorious time outside of confinement.

“It was pretty docile,” Prince William County police spokesman Jonathan Perok said.

Birds On The Run

The emu was one of several that tried to escape. The Prince William County police department tweeted: “Several EMUs tried to make a break for it this morning but were apprehended near Chimneys West Drive by Officers Fields and Stoll. Thankfully foot pursuits were not necessary although the radio traffic would have been #Emusing. (No emus or officers were harmed in the making of this spectacle)”

We sincerely hope the emu was able to make the most of his time off the farm.
