Emus being tasered, part deux
"Give a reporter two points and he'll draw a line."
There have now been two cases of emus being tasered in as many weeks. The new case, this week, involves an emu wandering the Pennsylvania Turnpike, which, I'll admit, is probably not a great situation.
Reports the Daily American: "Turnpike police were notified about the bird roaming near the 72.4 mile marker in Westmoreland County at 11:36 a.m. Five troopers from the New Stanton station and turnpike maintenance workers responded to the incident, said Lt. James McFadden."
In this case, unlike the one I mentioned the other week, the poor emu died.
Here's the article, from the Daily American, of Somerset County -- complete with comment from a spokeswoman from the AEA (American Emu Association).
