North Carolina family seeks help finding escaped emu [Video]

Doug escaped from his home in Hurdle Mills on Monday. Here is how you can help.

According to the owner’s Facebook page, the emu made a run for it after snapping the electrical wire on their fence. Since then, there have been multiple sightings of Doug speeding around the Hurdle Mills area toward Roxboro. 

The owners have enlisted the help of Person County Animal Services (PCAS) in helping to safely capture and return Doug the emu to his home. 

The PCAS Facebook page states that the organization has been in contact with the owner and they are working together to get the word out to the public. According to PCAS, “Doug the emu has apparently become famous overnight.”

The owners describe Doug the emu as “very friendly and curious.”

Let’s hope Doug the emu makes a speedy and safe return to his owners.
