When will it stop???

Yet another emu has been tasered. That's right, a third emu tasering in less than six weeks. This one was in Clark County, Washington; the Columbian has the story.
The emu tale began Saturday, when Garrison reported his big bird missing from his home in the 200 block of Southeast Everett Road. The day before, he and his wife, Svetlana, had sold two other emus and three llamas, leaving the emu by himself.

Lonely, he escaped his pen to search for his friends.

And that's when the trouble began. Eventually the poor guy ended up on a road, "slowing traffic and pecking vehicles." And then he was tasered, and brought back home. The good news is he is apparently doing fine now.

I told a colleague about this and he noted that there was actually another emu tasering earlier this year (you know, before this blog started tracking the epidemic). It was in New Hampshire, in May.
