An Australian Emu escaped from its cage in Shanxi late last month, and is now on the run in a nearby forest. Local authorities have pulled out the big guns in pursuit, and have six unmanned drones performing an aerial search for the bird.
The flightless bird was in Shanxi as part of a push for eco-tourism in the area, where it would be featured in an “Ecological Leisure Resort” near Linfen. The species is the second largest in the world, behind the African ostrich, and it’s fast. The drones certainly have their work cut out for them, and will hopefully hold back on the missiles if/when the bird is located.
