I was driving home this afternoon after watching the Carolina Tarheels embarrass the UCSB Gauchos in college basketball, exchanging Xmas pressies and enjoying the holiday cheer, when I came upon the creatures. Pretty sure they're Emu's. Strange site on the Carolina backroads. 1. 2. 3. There were a couple of Ostrich farms back years ago but they folded. First one for me with these. They stood about 4 feet high without stretching.
