    Don't taze me, Bro

    This is not what police departments had in mind when they started handing out Tasers.

    Florida deputies were forced to Taser an escaped emu named Plop-Plop after it "went kind of crazy."

    The giant Australian bird - which never got a chance to squawk, "Don't Tase me, bro" - was taken to a vet and made a full recovery.

    Fla. deputies Taser Plop-Plop the unruly emu

    PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) -- Bay County Sheriff's deputies were forced to use a Taser to subdue an escaped emu named Plop-Plop. The large female bird escaped from a farm last weekend and on Monday, she holed up with some horses and goats in a pen.

    When deputies arrived, the emu "went kind of crazy," said Sheriff's deputy Randolph Grob.

    The deputies didn't want the bird to hurt itself or them, so they used the Taser stun gun to immobilize Plop-Plop.

    The emu was brought to the Bay County Animal Control Center, where she has made a full recovery. The bird's owner is expected to take her home soon.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    True story,

    My Uncle and his grandson were doing some early season deer scouting 2 years ago and got charged by an emu (escaped from a nearby emu farm).

    A .223 apparently stops an emu quite well. We now call my uncle "Emu"
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    I wonder if it smelled like Thanksgiving after they tased it? Yummmmmm roasted emu.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    I've heard stories of Emus being turned loose since the price of them bottomed out. That would surprise you while scouting for deer season. Make one heck of a turkey dinner if you could fit it in the oven.

    That happened here, just the other day. Local reporter's Emu escaped. Was terrorizing the neighborhood. Two Bay County Sheriff's Deputies wound up dealing with it. The critter's fine, he'll be back with his owner in the next few days from what I understand.
