The RSPCA is appealing for information after an emu was seen at a golf course in Maesycwmmer, near Caerphilly. Golfers reported sightings on Sunday, and people were feeding the bird - which is native to Australia and second in size only to the ostrich - with sandwiches.
RSPCA officer Sophie Daniels said: "I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw the emu! The bird came over to feed from me but as soon as I tried to capture her, she kicked so hard I had to let her go. We have advised Animal Health and hope that the emu will be caught later today.”
