Authorities captured a loose emu near Interstate 85 near Salisbury Sunday afternoon.
The bird was caught around 4:30 p.m. by animal control officers and other police officers near where the interstate meets Peeler Road. N.C. Highway Patrol troopers also helped in the capture.
It was unclear late Saturday where the bird came from. It wasnt injured as authorities tried to capture it and authorities didnt have to shut down the interstate. NBC Charlotte contributed.
