According to the Huffington Post, a group of emus has been roaming the streets of Tuscon, Arizona, while the authorities have been trying to catch them. The gigantic birds escaped from their farm and the police have been "wrangling" with the animals to contain them and keep the situation under control. As you can see from the post the Pima County Sheriff's Department uploaded on Facebook, one of the emus stopped for a picture just before getting caught. The department also posted the following video showing two of the suspects on the loose:

Emus are often mistaken for ostriches due to some similar features, but the former are only the second largest bird on earth, topped by the latter. While this is the largest native bird in Australia, some of these animals are kept in farms here in the United States, and, sometimes, make their escape as you can see in this video showing another gang of emus being chased by the police:
