Have you ever wanted to have a pet Emu? You could have after Eddy the Emu’s owner decided he needed a new home this week.
The following post was listed earlier this week in the Nhulunbuy Notice Board Facebook group which is normally a trading place for household items, motorbikes, four wheel drives and boats. Eddy was on offer for free and it was not known why the owner wanted to give Eddy away.
Within just a few hours the post had already received in excess of 50 comments from curious locals who were interested to claim Eddy or to learn more about why an Emu had been listed on the community group.
We’re not to sure what happened to Eddy in the end. The post was eventually removed from the group. Have you ever thought about having a pet Emu? Let us know in the comments below.
It is possible to keep Emus as pets but regulations do vary from state to state. We have even heard that Emus are kept as pets in other countries such as the US an the UK.
