Just stay behind them and you'll be fine. Emus can't walk backwards.

Yep. Like a llama, or an emu

baronbloodbath: Were the emus the mascots of Eastern Michigan University?


Unfortunately, no. It's Eagles. It absolutely should have been Emus when they changed from Huron Warriors. We even had a "Go Emu" cheer.

That said, the first thing I thought of with "Emus in Kalamazoo" was some sort of EMU / WMU rivalry prank.

I wonder how emus would fair in a fight with Canuckian geese?
I've heard both are absolute bastards & can be somewhat violent.

A friend of mine retired a few years ago after 35 years as a zookeeper. He HATED the emus. His specialty was bears so he mostly worked with the North American exhibits but one day was called to help over in the emu enclosure. It was going to get well below 0°F overnight and they needed to put the emus inside. It took 4 PhD's a half hour to finally herd 3 emus, each with a brain the size of a walnut, into their house for their own good.

No wonder the Australian Army had no chance.

I'm in southeast Michigan, and a few decades ago, I had an Emu run across the road in front of my car during a morning commute to work.

IIRC, there was a fad at the time to raise them for meat, as it was supposed to be the next big thing...

Fun fact: the town was originally named Calamity Zoo

Did they just come from a BBQ?

Look for a suspicious kangaroo, wearing a bib, and chewed on a rib.
 
2022-11-30 11:33:40 AM  
Did they break out of Binder Park Zoo?  That's a bit of a trek for them, especially in this weather...

Depends if the goose can break the emu's femurs with a wingslap...  But I suspect both would flee in terror from a cassowary, and wisely so.

I've discovered I like saying "Kalamazeemu", but so rarely have the opportunity.

But a plumber with a $5 wrench could have done it in 5 minutes.
