Hi All,
Heard from a fellow golfer that last Friday on the Araluen Golf Course  near Perth he personally saw an Emu swallow his golf ball. In addition they could not find the golf balls of his playing partners and it is presumed the Emu swallowed these as well. It appears this Emu has done this before and it begs the question whether the balls are small enough to be excreted or do they remain inside the bird?
