Emu startles staff at Australia airport
The flightless bird was spotted at Whyalla Airport in South Australia.
An emu appeared to be hoping to take to the skies as it surprised staff at an airport in Australia.
The flightless bird was spotted exploring the terminal by cleaning staff at Whyalla Airport in South Australia on Saturday.
“I ran and told my manager, who didn’t believe me at first.”
The emu, which had been seen hanging around the airport a number of times over the previous week, was eventually shooed from the building – but not before leaving what was described as a “nasty present” on the floor.
The bird has since been relocated by animal services, the cleaning company said.
'I'm sick to death of going completely around in a circle... we should be telling the public as soon as possible'
