Stolen Ostrich Saves Itself

A farmer in Pitesti, Romania was distraught to find his ostrich had been stolen by rustlers. But he needn’t have worried -this ostrich may be part homing pigeon, because she escaped and found her own way home!

Owner Florin Diaconescu, 47, was very relieved to see her return back to the farm and was amazed at how she had managed to return by herself.

‘I had given her up as gone forever,’ he explained.

‘But I saw this cloud of dust heading towards the farm and she came running into the yard as fast as her legs would carry her.’

The bird was reportedly running at about 40 mph when she arrived at the farm. Link -via Arbroath
