An emu was found strolling through Johnston County this week and a local animal group is trying to reunite it with its owner.
A comment on Scott’s post said the bird was also spotted heading southbound on Interstate 95 near Micro and Kenly.

Emu are the second-largest living birds by height after ostrich. Emu are endemic to Australia, where they are the largest native bird. Emu are soft-feathered, brown flightless birds with long necks and legs and can grow up to about 6 feet tall. They can also travel far and sprint at speeds up to about 30 mph.
