Emu escapes home to look for mate

Thursday, October 4, 2012 - 8:47pm

Taco is a 4 year old Emu a five foot tall flightless bird that was out looking for a mate, according to his owner.

Now nothing on A1A resembles a female Emu but Taco is not one to be particular. Motorcycles seem to draw his interest.

Taco was interested in everything and everyone and deputies at first had no idea what to do with him.

They sort of tried to herd him off the road using patrol cars which had no chance. Another motorcycle arrived which was also a mistake. Taco wanted a kiss. And high stepping it across the highway he seemed as free as a bird.

Taco it turns out lives in a suburban backyard about two blocks away, where the uniqueness doesn't stop with the menagerie.

His owner did not answer the bell but reportedly said the bird's antics are because of mating season. He might not have found a mate but he apparently had a very good time anyway.
