Don’t Tase the Emu, Bro!

This entry was posted by Rob on Thursday, 21 August, 2008 at

Sheriff’s Deputies of Bay County in Florida ended up deploying a Taser on an unruly emu. Yes, an emu. Apparently, a female emu named Plop-Plop, escaped from a farm and ended up camping out in a pen with some horses and goats.

Local deputies were called to aid in her capture, but Plop-Plop “went kind of crazy” when they arrived. Fearing the large bird would injure itself or the deputies, a Taser was used to subdue and immobilize the animal.

After the tasing, Plop-Plop fizz-fizz-led out, was brought to the Bay County Animal Control Center and made a full recovery. Oh what a relief it is.

The emu’s owner, probably in need of an Alka-Seltzer, is expected to claim his runaway emu soon.
