Lost Your Emu? Sarasota Animal Services May Have It

Are you missing your pet emu?

One of the large, flightless birds - it's the national bird in its native Australia - was found wandering in Deer Hollow in Sarasota, near the northwest corner of Fruitville Road and Interstate 75.

Sarasota County Animal Services officers were called to the neighborhood today and brought the emu to the animal shelter.

Anyone who may have lost an emu in Sarasota County can contact Animal Services at (941) 861-9501.

First, you have to prove you own the emu.
