The real-life road runner:

Post  Doogs on Mon Oct 20, 2014 1:41 pm

Huge rhea bird has been on the loose on British streets for
TWO YEARS foiling all attempts to catch it


Common Rhea, native to South America, spotted in the English countryside
Giant bird was photographed near the RAF Odiham base, in Hampshire
Flightless birds can go up to six feet tall and weigh up to four stone
The Rhea, nicknamed Ron, has been on the loose for two years

Thanks Doogs, I hope it stays safe and doesn't end up being shot like the other one, honestly why do people shoot first and then ask questions? It makes me Evil or Very Mad Sad

Long may Ron stay safe and well.

That's such a shame that one was shot, to many people just do a knee jerk reaction to something like this. I would have thought that as a Game Warden would have had the sense to contact a wildlife organisation before shooting the Rhea. Hope fully Ron will stay safe untill his recapture
