Lots of people around the world keep birds as pets, and the vast
majority of the time they pose no danger to their owners. A
parakeet probably isn’t going to pick a fight with you, but larger,
more exotic species are a different animal, and a bizarre story out
of Florida serves as a shocking reminder of that fact.
As local ABC affiliate
WCJB reports, law enforcement in Alachua County received a pair
of frantic 911 calls claiming that a pet bird had attacked its
elderly owner. When sheriff’s deputies arrived they realized how
serious the situation was, as the bird was a cassowary, a large and
often aggressive species native to Australia.
