What was this guy thinking? The pity is that the emu was killed by this idiot and he got off scott free.
At 30 mph I am not sure how he proposed to actually subdue 35 kilos of feathered fury, it is quite hard to persuade an emu to do something it doesn’t want to do, and almost as hard to stop it doing something it wants to!
Even if he had managed to bring the bike safely to a halt with the emu still alive and amenable, how was he going to get it back to his interested passengers? No amount of occy straps were going to hold an emu across his handlebars or on the pillion seat!
