Emus In The News 2014

Pretty much anytime I see emus in the news, I read about them.  Hey, it's more interesting than reading about war and politicians arguing about taxes.  During the last month or so, I was saddened by reading about Mary the emu's murder, I enjoyed reading about a family who enjoys having an emu for a backyard pet much to their neighbors' annoyance, I worried after reading about a heat wave in Australia that is killing emus, and I chuckled after reading yet another emu escapes news story (that happens so often it's the type of story that News Of The Weird would label "no longer weird"--my version of that label is not giving a link).  In any case, when you're out and about, watch out for large flightless birds from down under running around.  Personally, I've never just randomly run into one, but they seem to pop up in the news a lot anyway!
