This is one weird bird I have to say. Will it let me pet it? Will it bite me? Even I didn't know what was going to happen.

I have had some experience with emus up close and personal. They are not usually aggressive (unlike cassowaries, who will quite literally kill you. As in dead), but they know they are bigger than you and will expect you to share your lunch.

They will eat leaves out of your hand. I have had them do it.

Before you do, make sure to ask DtA what happened to his thumbs.

Dude. No. Do not feed those emus without permission. They look like they're in a zoo or something. Enclosure = people put them there, plus they're emus. In Idaho. They did not walk there. Talk to the people who put them there before you go feeding their emus.

I will ask the owner if I can feed them. They are in a petting zoo area with goats so I figured I was allowed to at least pet them possibly on the head. I did feed the goats but I wonder if the emus will eat the goat food from my hand also.

Yes - I'm sure that petting them is cool if you can get near one. I. LOVE. GOATS. But, yeah. Ask the zookeeper about feeding the emus. They might have a tasty treat or something you can give them.

that video has more than 2,000 views somehow. I am being serious. Emu is more popular than the Csnada Goose apparently. Not sure how the heck this happened.

Here are some goats for you including a baby goat. A guess the baby goat is called a kid.
