Jan. 11 (UPI) -- An emu caused a ruckus in an Australian city by wandering down the middle of a street in a residential neighborhood and refusing to leave.

A video filmed Wednesday on a residential street in Adelaide shows the emu calmly wandering down the center of the road while cars slow down and move around it.


A man with a broom attempts to encourage the bird to leave the road, but it instead stubbornly sits down.

The emu eventually gets up again and another man is more successful in getting it to vacate its position.
