    Police: 'We did what we thought was appropriate' with stray emu

    By Andrea Hahn, The Southern

    CARBONDALE - The Carbondale Police Department owns a tranquilizer gun.

    But the officers aren't expert emu handlers, said Sgt. Don Priddy.

    "We don't have any experienced emu handlers on the staff," he said.

    He noted, though, that Animal Control Officer Cindy Nelson does keep up to date on exotic animal handling practices. She was not available to handle Wednesday's emu complaint. However, the advice she gave the officers concurred with advice given by other area animal experts - emus can be dangerous and capturing or subduing them can be difficult.

    hahahaha, how could I forget about THAT?

    well, 9 lives remaining for the resident sceaming_emu
