 WEST TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – An Indiana Conservation Officer came across a very interesting ‘hitchhiker’ Thursday evening in West Terre Haute.

The Indiana DNR Law District 5 Facebook page added a couple photos of a young emu that had been missing for several weeks. Officials reported the emu had traveled about five miles from home before it was picked up.

The Facebook page stated the owners were ‘extremely glad to get her back’ and it was all because of a Facebook photo that the emu was found.

The Conservation Officer stated, “You just never know what you are going to see in a shift.”
