US man joined by emu during jog

A US man picked up an unusual jogging partner when an emu began following him.

A Virginia Beach animal shelter supervisor said residents contacted the city after the tall, gangly bird showed up.

It turns out that the bird had merely wandered away from home. Emus are legal to own in the area.

Animal shelter supervisor Wayne Gilbert said that animal control officers located the bird, which was returned to its owner.
