Shropshire rheas: The nightmare continues

It seems I spoke too soon.

From the Shropshire Star:

Two giant birds, which were part of a flock of rheas that ran amok in the Shropshire countryside, are still on the loose.

Their owner, farmer Tom Evans, is calling for anyone who might have seen the 6ft birds to contact him so he can capture them and return them to their rightful home.

The other birds have already been returned.

Mr Evans, of Wheatcommon Lane, Ashford Carbonell, near Ludlow, made the appeal after the birds escaped and attacked a member of the public.
