Emu Gets Stolen from Sydney Wildlife Park, Apparently for No Reason

Park employees maintain that the bird has almost no monetary value

Earlier this week, an emu bird living at the Featherdale Wildlife Park in Sydney got stolen by some perpetrators who broke into its enclosure, tackled it and then made a quick getaway.

Funnily enough, the staff working at said wildlife park are unable to offer a solid explanation for why it was exactly that this bird was stolen.

As they put it, the emu has almost no monetary value, and therefore the hassle of stealing it more than outweighs any potential financial benefits the bird might present its new owners with.

quote Chad Staples, of the wildlife park's employees, who made a case of how, “It's unbelievable. I understand to a degree when you're talking about an animal that has significant monetary value, but an emu? It's obviously been taken alive. I don't know what to say, to be honest.”

The police are currently investigating the case, so hopefully, an explanation for this peculiar theft will soon be found.
