    VT - Elusive emu remains on the lam after five weeeks

    Escaped emu on the loose in the Champlain Islands (wcax.com)
    SOUTH HERO, Vt. - The Champlain Islands are buzzing over a wayward farm animal that escaped from its pen several weeks ago. But this is no ordinary farm animal. It's a 150-pound bird.

    The elusive emu was sighted Friday morning at the local elementary school walking right by the principal's window.
    ---
    The emu has been on the loose for about five weeks now, and has been spotted throughout Grand Isle and South Hero. The emu came from a farm in Grand Isle. The owner of the farm used to be a dairy farmer. He told us he got the emus for his grandchildren, but they don't make great pets.

    "The Grand Isle farmer has posted an ad into the paper that has said, 'Free emu if you can capture it,'" said Tonya Poutry of the Islander Newspaper.

    Well if they'd go over to Steely's house I'm sure they find their emu.

    The Vermont emu has learned lessons from the unfortunate South Carolina emu, and is putting them into practice.

    Crack me up LOL Those Emu's are phenom for sure. WOW, I never knew they had such personality. Perfectly suited to run in tandem with our Steely Dan.
