Police Tasered and Handcuffed ... an Emu!

Forget tranquilizer darts - that's the stuff of Hollywood. Real police officers use taser, even on a wayward emu:

Authorities in Mississippi said they had to handcuff an emu and shock it with a Taser to remove the ostrich-like flightless bird from a roadway.

Oh, and they used handcuffs, too. I'm assuming they meant emu legcuffs: Link (Sadly, no photo of the cuffed emu)


Fish, you would think. In the very small town I grew up, there was an animal control officer (for quite a while, my grandfather held that job), so you'd think in a larger city, they'd have a department of people trained to handle these problems.

I don't think my grandfather ever had to deal with emus. The occasional stray horse or such, plus the usual dogs and cats, but I don't recall him mentioning any emus.
