garden space to run around. COMM: And enjoy bathing in the paddling pool. COMM: Grooming their owners. COMM: And nuzzling in for a nap. COMM: Come rain, snow or shine, these birds of a feather always stick together.

    Actually in New South Wales Australia Emus are a protected species, that means you cant kill, harm or take from the wild unless you have a licence or authorisation. So I hope these people in the US have acquired these birds in a lawful manner.

    there's a girl I like at my school that has a neighbor that has a pet emu in her neighborhood

  6. AmaryBrit says:

    these are not cute! they are a wild animal that does not belong in New York… they can be VERY dangerous to humans if they get agrivated and can kill if threatened! this is NOT a "cute exotic pet"

    you have weird parrots

  13. James Pitrella says:

    I know these emus that were raised and handled as chicks , at a picnic I was sitting in a chair feeding them macaroni salad from my hand. They were mingling around with the people and dogs. Very tame and follow owners and come when called.

  14. Jim Speranza says:

    I've been with these birds since they were babies they're not vicious they are so well cared for it's ridiculous and some of you people that don't know anything about anything shouldn't even be talking. is the grandfather of these birds they're very very well taken care of I am an animal lover if I saw anything wrong there I would say something. I was kind of hoping maybe we get some more

    I like how it lays in the pool.

  17. Leigh Davis says:

    Wow usually emus are mean. I'm surprised.

  18. Sir Meow The Library Cat says:

    😖 These birds are not suitable as 'pets' because they are powerful, aggressive and possess claws and a beak that can shred you to pieces! Leave well alone!

  19. Danna Lopez says:

    Emus are DINOSAURS…EVERY bird is a DINOSAUR…beautiful smart animals…

  22. FrancesBaconandEggs says:

    This seems…illegal and wrong.

  23. DireConsenquences says:

    Wild animals are not pets.   I don't understand. There are hundreds of thousands of domestic animals that need help, and yet you would rather have a fucking emu?

  24. ian devil says:

  25. AnnemieM says:

    How awesome is that. Maybe one day you can get them a bigger pool, they would love that. Thanks for sharing.

  26. Annaliza Domingo says:

    I love that the fact I get to see new animals

  27. gizdonk says:

    Unfortunately Australia lost the emu war

  28. caveman Versace says:

    You want a bird that is so stupid that it turns on their owners, go for it. They are NOT perfect family pets! Fucken privileged people and their idiotic misconceptions! Emu's are known to turn on smaller family members and start kicking until the thing they are kicking stops moving. That isn't even the half of what they do during mating time.

  29. HiddenPalm says:

    There is allot of hate and negative propaganda against the Emu. And that's because the Emu beat the Australian Military in all out war back in the 1930's. Look up the Emu War here on youtube. This is a true story. That's how powerful and skilled these bird warriors are. The Australian military never forgot, the day, their machine guns and armored vehicles failed when they went up against the great and proud Emu.

  37. tania V says:

    Why were these birds even allowed to be exported from Oz ? Just so thsesbpeople can show off with a unique pet ! Why dontvthey geo & rescue a needy animal & leave wild animals alone… they should be with their own kind. Emus live in large groups so this is NOT natural just to have 2!!! Bet ya US wouldn't allow their eagles to be exported as pets !

  38. N says:

    I think that its pretty stupid to keep Emus as pets. Not to mention that the United States is not the bird country of origin, so obviously the habitat given isn't really what they would experience in Australia (aka the birds true home). Now if they rescued the birds, I'm completely fine with that. But if they bought the birds because they're 'exotic', I'm going to be pissed off.

  39. tania V says:

    Manta Rings, thank you for enlightening me to Emu farming in the US. I still don't believe in keeping them as pets though

  40. Ajaib Sidhu says:

    I want to be them when I grow up.

  41. Kitty P says:

    This is wrong. Emus are WILD animals and should not be kept as pets.

  42. Theresa Mayton says:

    I also have 2 emus as pets.
    They are very curious, funny/entertaining, snuggly, silly birds. They get along with the dog, donkey, & ducks slightly less tolerant of the chickens who outnumber them.
    We incubated & hatched them.
    Like most pets, how they behave depends a great deal on how they were raised and their life experiences. Please try to have an open mind about every new kind of pet you you discover. Judging all members of a species by either the best or worst examples is not the best decision.

  55. robert bertie says:

    so sick of Americans stealing animals from other countries so they can boast to others about their "exotic pets", thousands die every year being snuck out of the country in suit cases so little Princess in America gets her special pet.

    these poor prisoners of war

  66. Di Bendigo says:

    This is so very, very wrong and cruel! People who keep emus in unnatural, especially cold environments away from their own kind, their natural environments and food sources just to be their "pets" disgust me. Way to ignore an animal's own extensive needs just to gratify your own selfish wants and get attention by creating an unusual conversation piece… If you truly cared about these emus you'd be more informed and realise what harm you are doing them raising them there alone. Do they have access to a vet who knows Australian native animals? One totally ignorant fool in the comments even fed an emu macaroni salad! How typical of the ignorance out there. If any creature cannot be kept as a pet in its native country by law, doesn't that tell you utterly self-centred moronic exotic creature owners something?

  67. Depressed Litherds says:

    This is offensive, Australian soldiers died to protect us from the emus!

  84. Chuckles the Chicken says:

    Emu's are still wild animals.

  85. James Wright says:

    I absolutely love emus and they can be so gentle and loving, but these are exotic animals that need the company of other emus and if not treated correctly can understandably cause great injury! I would love one, but don’t encourage any exotic animal breeders or importers, it’s wrong, it’s great if you rescue an exotic animal from a rescue centre and learn how to look after correctly and understand it’s needs!

  86. Joe ROBBINS says:

    oooohhhh me would Love to have some , I have chickens and turkeys but always wanted to raise some emu or ostriches that's so cool
