Australian Outback pub bans messy emus for ‘bad behavior’

In this photo taken and released by Leanne Byrne, an emu named Carol, three years old and raised from an egg, walks around behind a fence, July 5, 2020, in Yaraka, in the Longreach Region, Queensland, Australia, population 13. An Australian Outback pub has banned two emus, Carol and another, for “bad behavior” after they learned to climb the stairs and created havoc inside. The two large, flightless birds were already adept at stealing food from people in a lightly populated Queensland state outpost. (Leanne Byrne via AP)
