Follow that bird!

SOUTH HERO, Vermont - An elusive emu on the lam in Vermont has been amusing residents in communities on Lake Champlain.

The 150-pound flightless bird looks like a small ostrich. It has been spotted wandering here and there in Grand Isle and South Hero since it escaped from a local farm five weeks ago.

It was spotted again Friday outside the South Hero elementary school, where it walked by a window of the principal's office. School worker Steve Berard tried to lasso it with an extension cord, but it broke free.

The emu's owner tells WCAX-TV he bought three emus for his grandchildren but they don't make great pets.

He's taken out an ad in a local newspaper saying, 'Free emu if you can capture it.'

TME Who would have thought an emu would be a flight risk?
