Florida Man April 15 (4/15)

Alachua, Florida – Officials have claimed that a species of bird found in Australia and New Guinea killed the breeder after it fell.

On Friday, the Gainesville Sun was informed by the Alachua County Rescue Department that a Cassowary bird had killed a man. Wildlife officials say the victim was feeding the birds.

Jeff Taylor, Vice President of the United States, stated that he believed the dead man had been thrown to the ground along with the bird. The accident was reported to first aid teams at 10:10 am on Friday. They arrived at the scene. The man died despite the efforts of first aid teams.

Marvin Hagos, 75, was killed in a car accident. The county mayor has opened an investigation. Lieutenant Brett Rodneriser stated, “It appears that Marvin Hagos was killed in a tragic accident.” He said the cassowary was still on the farm.

Cassowaries can grow to 6 feet tall and weigh 130 pounds. The Cassowary bird is similar to the Emus in that it has black plumage with a brightly colored head.

According to the San Diego Zoo website, the Cassowary bird’s 4-inch claws can inflict heavy damage on its enemies. Cassowaries can travel at speeds of up to 31 miles per hour.

In New Guinea, the cassowary bird can be found being eaten. These birds are a favorite among the people who keep exotic birds in America.

Karen Parker, a spokeswoman for cassowary birds, says that owners should have had experience with birds and provide perfect cages. Cassowaries can cause fatal injuries to humans.

On Saturday, wildlife officials did not return calls to the Associated Press. The fate of the bird is unknown at this time.
