A captive cassowary, the large flightless animal considered the most dangerous of birds, killed a man Friday near Gainesville.

The Alachua County Sheriff’s Office is conducting a death investigation, spokesman Lt. Brett Rhodenizer said Saturday.

About 10:30 a.m., authorities received a call from a witness stating the man fell and had been attacked by the bird at a property off Alachua County Road 235 — northwest of the University of Florida in Gainesville — where the cassowary and other captive wildlife are housed.

The man, whose name was not released, had sustained “serious injuries” and was transported to a local hospital, said Alachua County Fire Rescue Deputy Chief Jeff Taylor in an email. He later died.

Inventive too, he's never used a cassowary before.


How much must it suck to be killed by a bird?

Maybe raising them is a bad idea.

Fucking velociraptor.
Correct.

160 pounds, 30mph, 7ft leap. 5 inch blades for claws. Known to attack and kill people.

Who would want this in their yard?

There used to be a "wild animal rescue " in that part of Gainesville. They would take animals retired from zoos or circuses and keep them there. I did some volunteer work for them once.
They had elephants, lions tigers, monkeys, you name it.

I wonder if that’s the place?

This. It's like when I read about people who get mauled by their "pet" tiger or get bitten by their deadly venomous "pet" snake.

That's not tragic. That's natural selection.

If you're one of these people who runs a rescue place and it happens, yeah, that sucks. But if you're just dumb shit who decided to illegally obtain a deadly animal and they kill you, hey, that's how it works.

I feel like that blessed animal is the pool guy at the large swimming pool of life and is armed with idiot-killing bleach.
