Police in the US had to resort to a stun gun and handcuffs to capture a runaway emu running loose on the road in central Mississippi.
Police Officer Kiley Culpepper told WLBT-TV in Jackson that motorists had been calling 911 since Friday to report sightings of two emus on I-20 and nearby US Highway 80.
Authorities had been unable to find the animals until Sunday, when one was spotted near an I-20 entrance ramp.
The big bird was dodging traffic. Culpepper and deputies were able to surround the animal but has to use the taser and handcuffs to finally get it off the road.
I guess a taser was preferable to a baton!
