I couldn’t believe my eyes. Goats, pigs, cows, buffaloes, crows, flies, mosquitoes, ducks, donkeys, monkeys and horses not to forget the occasional elephant and camel – yes. But emu? Apparently breeding these birds is in. The owners obviously consider them to be the same as other fauna, for the birds soon foraged in bins and also chewed up wall posters!! I did not go too near for I had heard somewhere that the kick of this bird is lethal. Much later I realised it was the ostrich that was known for its kick of death.
What next? The chihuahua?
