my neighbour down the rd was given an ostrich.I used to help my mate work has bees in an apiary with an ostrich. We always had a broom for protection and didn't use a smoker until the ostrich had been stung enough that he gave up. Those things are dangerous. One broke my friends mums ribs kicking her through a deer fence. There is still the odd large egg kicking around the farm but the ostriches are gone thank goodness.
his name was " Mr bloody ostrich " and he had had many owners.
i was scared of that ostrich .
one day he got out and ran around the mudflats causing all the traffic to stop and look.
he was eventually killed by one of my neighbors dogs .
i was scared of that dog too.
