LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) -- A mad emu gave deputies a Texas-sized
hard time.
El Paso authorities say the big bird was running loose Tuesday,
snarling rush-hour traffic near Interstate 10 and attacking
deputies trying to restrain it.
Deputies with the El Paso County Sheriff's Office tried to
prevent the tall, flightless bird from running into traffic. But
when deputies neared the emu, it became aggressive and slashed one
deputy's pant leg.
The deputy was not seriously injured.
The emu died as it was being transported to an animal control
shelter. The cause of death was not immediately known.
