Giant Bird, Cassowary Claws Owner To Death In Florida
Think of it as death by modern day velociraptor*. The cassowary (Casuarius casuarius) is a large bird (~6') that sports 5-inch claws and runs very fast (~31 mph). It is considered the world's most dangerous bird. Why in the world would you keep one in your yard?
Leave it to one Florida man who found out the hard way that a cassowary doesn't make a good pet.
* [The Blog note: I use the term velociraptor loosely and only because it is highly recognizable as opposed to the actual fierce dinosaur bird, Deinonychus, which few are familiar with. Thanks for perpetuating the lie, Jurassic Park franchise.]
