The Ludlow ostrich again

On Saturday this blog carried the news that an ostrich had been knocked down and killed near Ludlow.

Stories on the Shropshire Star website tend to acquire more detail a day or two after they have been posted so I checked again. It now informs us:

A West Mercia Police control room spokeswoman said: “The ostrich came out of nowhere and collided with a vehicle. Minor damage was caused to the car, but sadly the ostrich died.

“It is believed the ostrich came from a local farm or residential property.

So if anything, the mystery deepens.

They are very tasty. I hope somebody took it home for the freezer.

I was rather hoping for a Tom Sharpe angle, though.
