I know for a fact there are Emus in central Mo. Id still like to see the pic however.
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
