Wayward Emus Escape On Five-Day Jaunt

A pair of five-foot-tall emus are safe back at home after they flew—or rather, ran from—their coop on a four-day escapade to points unknown across North Potomac.

The flightless birds got loose on Friday after their pen was weakened by last week's storms, said their owner Steven Strasburg, who rents a six-acre plot on Turkeyfoot Drive backing onto Muddy Branch Park.
