'Stupid, Aggressive' Albino Ostrich Bolts Far-East Circus

05 September 2011

The Moscow Times

A rare, albino ostrich is on the loose in the Far Eastern city of Petropavlosk-Kamchatsky after escaping a traveling circus Sunday night, Interfax reported.
"Two ostriches escaped. One was discovered early Monday morning in the Spartak stadium, where the circus tent is pitched. The second … still hasn't been found," said Vasily Kolos, the administrator of the Anastasiya Circus.
He blamed the incident on circus workers who forgot to close the ostriches' pen.
Given the bird's tremendous top speed — it can run as fast as 70 kilometers per hour — Kolos said that it could be in anywhere in the city by now.
The circus is asking local residents to help find the bird, but Kosol warned against approaching it. "The ostrich is a very stupid and aggressive bird — it's capable of maiming," he said.
The circus-break comes on the heels of another incident in July, when a "depressed" ferret escaped a circus in East Siberian city of Chita. Read more:
