They're all over the place in southeast MO.

About 15 years ago people thought there would be a large market for Emu and Ostrich meat but it never materialized. So people mainly raise them for their own table and some hope the market will materialize. They used to be worth A LOT of money but now they're pretty much worthless because no one wants the meat, no one will buy breeding pairs, you need special fencing and they are impossible to catch. And no one will buy the eggs.

We also have Llama's in MO but that's another story. lol

While driving around the state forest roads in northern pa we found a lost beagle. He had been out there for a while it looked like because of being so thin. We gave him water and half a sheetz sub and then took him to a local shelter.

One time up in the mountains we came across a possum with mange really bad when we stopped for lunch. He was trying to attack my tire, I did the humane thing and put it down.

Found this too!

I heard a guy here bought a breeding pair of Ostrich back then. He was hauling them home in a cattle trailer. One got currious and stuck his head out of the trailer. SMACK! on a road sign. When the guy got them home and opened the trailer he had one very confused ostrich and one headless one.

I imagine the headless one was fairly confused for a very brief moment as well...

Find a way, and take'er home.....or maybe return it to the owner?


Speaking of returning bikes. A Harley washed up recently in B.C............from Japan! Got pulled out during the tsunami and bobbed around the effing Pacific Ocean before washing up on the Canadian coast.

Of course, being a good Canuck......they reunited it with the owner

That looks like part of PA's mining legacy. Lots of great old stuff outside of Shamokin and elsewhere around the coal region.
