Local Emu Goes on an Adventure, Police Track it Down

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

Police officers encounter a lot of strange situations throughout their careers, and the saying “all in a day’s work” definitely applies to the law enforcement field.

This is certainly true for several officers with the Oro Valley Police Department, who received a unique assignment on Thursday morning. An unusual, unique suspect was on the loose, and officers had to track the escapee down. The only catch was that this wasn’t any old criminal or mischief-maker; this was the second largest living bird in the world, also known as an emu.

The animal was reported to be running loose in an neighborhood in the area of North La Canada Drive and West Moore Road.

The emu belonged to a nearby private residence and was returned to its rightful owners, after being found nearly a mile away.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
