  • Emu gets shot and killed in Carbondale.

    I opened my local daily newspaper and first thing I read was..

    Police gun down errant emu

    Hmmh Emu didn't tell me he was coming to town..

    So curious I kept on reading...it seemed Emu got a bit agitated and left and ran amock Carbondale (where I live) and apparantly threatened people and people had to come by and shoot the bird.

    CARBONDALE - When an emu in Carbondale failed to surrender to police Wednesday, officers were given no choice but to put the large bird down.

    Here's to you Emu-Joe

    When an emu in Carbondale failed to surrender to police

    Reporter: "Was it the right thing to shoot the emu?"
    Cop: "Well, we told the Emu to lay down and put its hands over its head. It didn't respond, instead it looked at us blankly and mocked us with a loud shreik. At this point we had to kill it. Afterwards, it was noted that the emu, in fact, didn't have hands."

    Did they really expect the emu to "surrender"? Anyway, you seem all too eager for Joe to fly out there and make a house call, Alex.

      Wow, that's the second time he's died. First a fence somewhere in the middle of nowhere, now a village, well, in the middle of nowhere as well. Let's see how many lives emus have .

                    but Joe is stupid, he lost 2

                    eh, he can kill himself 10 more times before his state of death becomes permanent, have at it Joe!

                        Don't forget Joe died twice trying to kill Jaws, the Great White shark. Once he killed him, he actually took his jaw, ironicly. He proudly wears it in his beak now, talk about a grill!
