An Emu spotted on the streets of Boston was penned by authorities in Massachusetts two hours after it escaped.
Emu named Kermit, escaped from the property of a local resident who cares for unwanted animals. The resident had been preparing to transport Kermit to a farm in Maine when it fled.
Authorities say the bird was captured safely after it was given a pear from a nearby tree.
Native to Australia, emus are the largest living bird after the ostrich and can reach up to nearly 100 pounds and a height of almost six feet. They run fast and can become aggressive.
This is not the first time that humans have had to lure animals in order to rescue them.
