Squirrels, possums, raccoons, they all have a tendency to pick just the right time to run in front of our car - but an Emu? It happened today on Carman Road in Guilderland around 3pm. Mark Grimm was driving along and an escaped Emu darted out into the road and stared him down. He got close enough to snag two photos as police appear to chase the animal down in the background.
A happy ending here, the emu wasn't hurt and he was eventually caught and returned to his owner - thought to be Whispering Willow Wild Care located on the same street.
