While on the subject of Emus, one recently turned up at a Ostrich farm (heaven 
forbid)  in Ballan, near Ballarat, Vic. Appearently it has taken a liking to 
the bigger birds and has decided to hang about with the flock.

Now all Victorians know that the Emu has basically been extinct in this region 
for over 50 years, the closest populations being the Grampians and around Tower 
Hill. (I can't think of  any closer.) Any suggestions? An excapee?
