Rogue Emu Captured in New Jersey

Police in New Jersey have arrested a suspect accused of terrorizing a Paterson neighborhood: an emu.

The four-foot-tall bird was first spotted Tuesday morning near the city’s border it shares with Totowa, police say. After a series of close encounters, animal control officers were finally able to catch the long-legged bird and lock it up in a large animal cart, according to Paterson police. It’s been taken to a shelter, where it’s due to be examined by a veterinarian, Chief Animal Control Officer John DeCando says.
