CHENANGO COUNTY — Community members are rallying to spread the word of an emu that has been on the loose for at least five days.
Said Wendy Bovee Oldham, the emu was first spotted near Guilford on Oct. 10. It was seen the following day near the White Store Cemetery. The emu was then seen on Shumway Rd in Mount Upton on Oct. 13, and again in Mount Upton on Tuesday.
Oldham said the emu was last seen (as reported to her) behind the Rockdale Hotel in Mount Upton.
“The emu strolled through town, Oldham said. “Many people have been on the look out for the Emu, and are trying to figure out a way to safely contain it.”
Oldham added that the owners of the emu are unknown. “No one knows where the emu came from,” she said.
