Monday, April 21, 2014 – Look out! BEHIND YOU! With its top speed of over 40 mph, a 6 ft. tall rhea has thus far eluded capture. Last month the rhea escaped a farm in Hertfordshire, U.K. and has recently been sighted on golf courses near Nuthampstead. Note: We do not know if this bird is actually “angry”. That said, it’s a large, powerful bird and reportedly the police and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals have warned the public to stay away from the rhea.
Naturally, Twitter is abuzz with sightings.
Of course we ultimately want to see this bird safely returned home, but be on the lookout for a large rhea, possibly adorned in a trench coat and a fedora, attempting to skip town.
