This came from London this morning.

Police in central London have warned locals to beware of “Big Bird”.  Big Bird is actually a 6ft tall rhea, a tall flightless bird native to South America.  Big Bird few the coop from a private collection about a week ago and has not been seen since.  The cops are saying that he is an aggressive bird and a very real threat to the public especially small children.

“Poppycock” says a local bird expert David Lindo, a broadcaster and writer about birds. "It's a bird that will peg it (run away) as soon as it sees you ... it's been very overrated in terms of the dangerous aspect of it,"

Me, I’m thinking that if a bird comes around a corner stands there and looks down at me, it has my undivided attention.  It will be me that “pegs it”.
