BREVARD COUNTY • CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA (WFTV)  – An escaped emu sent Brevard County deputies and animal control officers on a wild chase Friday night in Cape Canaveral.

The evasive emu escaped from a home on Lincoln Avenue, witnesses said.

A viewer who called Channel 9 said he was walking his dog when the dog got loose and spooked “another man’s emu.”

He said the emu then led deputies on a foot pursuit through a neighborhood.

Officials held up blankets and closed in on the large bird in an attempt to corral it.

An animal control officer eventually subdued the combative bird along State Road A1A.
