What a birdbrain!
Massachusetts cops were called into action Monday in order to capture a runaway emu that had flown the coop.
The carefree critter was spotted in Franklin, about 26 miles, as the crow flies, southwest of Boston, after two officers were finishing up a traffic stop.
Police were able to reestablish the pecking order after corralling the flightless bird with the help of its owner, according to a Facebook post by the Franklin Police Department.
“In a joint operation with the Animal Control Officer and the Franklin Police Safety Division, Officer Rosa and Sgt. Reilly were able to bring the emu home where it can no longer terrorize motorists of Lincoln Street,” the post read.
“No job too small, no bird too big,” the post added.
