Emu spotted walking across Fort Wayne Road

Local News

Fort Wayne Drivers were surprised Sunday afternoon to see what appeared to be an emu crossing the road.

It happened on Winchester Rd., just north of Wayne High School at about 4:15.

The emu caused all traffic to stop as it took it’s time crossing the street, squawking all awhile.

Drivers really didn’t know what to do, except wait and enjoy the spectacle.

“I snapped a few pictures because I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing and I thought to myself who do you call when you see a wild Emu?” said Heath Lisenby. “We just kept driving but it was a surprise to be sure.”

Lisenby said the emu was only 4 feet away from his car.
