Rogue emu prompts school lockdowns

Friday, November 13, 2015

ODESSA, Del. -- An emu on the run for more than 60 days has prompted lockdowns at two elementary schools in Delaware. The runaway emu was spotted Monday near Spring Meadow Elementary School and Old State Elementary School, leading to a "soft lockdown" at both schools. Students remained inside while normal activity continued. Delaware Department of Agriculture spokesman Daniel Shortridge said no one is sure who owns the bird.
