'[ot:]Esp for those in OZ'

The creature has appeared in domain this week. All of the Google information seems to cater to the idea that I want to eat him. That is not so, he is a guest. Although he is likely escaped from a nearby farm he is foraging well. I need to know: In general are they hostile? He seems just a bit timid, not at all aggresseive. Are they normally active at night or in the daytime? Is there any food the especially like that I might use to befriend him? I have a very dense thicket in the corner of my woods that I think he considers home. Are these critters smart like a parrot or dumb like a chicken?

Most likely some trigger happy redneck will do him in, but may be not if I can provide sanctuary.  John Ferrell    http://DixieNC.US

The impression I get from a guy I know in NZ who farms them is that they
can get quite agressive & do some real damage (with their feet I think?)
Can be amazingly cunning for something with no brain to speak of also.

I can't find out more as I'm not in NZ right now . The Ozzies will be just
about waking up.

Nah. Legs are too long and muscular. Plus it doesn't look like it has
the "plume" on his/her head that most peacocks have. Looks like an Emu
to me.

OK, lets break out the firearms and answer the question once and for
all... ;-)

(J/K for all those who might be offended)

I hear they're good for eating.  Open season in most places too if you think
they might be doing damage...

I really don't mind harvesting the meat if it is really going to be
consumed.AFIK, there is only one Emu around here and a lot of deer. As big a
nuisance as the deer are I expect those to be consumed as well. The deer are
pretty much "rats on stilts".

Since this Emu is basically a free range animal, it is probably not a good
example of what a domestic version would taste like.

I permit people to release all the squirrels they want in the woods. It is
good exercise for the dogs until the hawks eat them!
