Forget Magpies, This Emu Attacks Unsuspecting Cyclists!

At this time of year everyone, particularly cyclists, take extra care to avoid being swooped by magpies.

Well in Canberra, things have taken a big turn after reports that an emu has been CHASING cyclists down the road!

Have you seen an emu up close? They are bloody huge, and could easily do some serious damage.

This video was captured by a cyclist after just moments earlier, he too had been attacked by the enraged emu.

Chris Wilson, who filmed the angry bird told the Canberra Times:

"It did all these things like it's trying to intimidate you," 

"I was on my bike facing it so I had to turn around and when I got about five metres away to a distance it was comfortable with it just stopped and turned around."

"All I wanted was a happy snap of the emus beside the road. But it was great to see that wildlife you don't tend to see it unless it is in captivity."

Wildlife experts are warning cyclists and pedestrians to avoid the area as it is currently breeding season, which can result in these unprovoked acts of aggression.
