The couple took the emu back to their farm while authorities worked to identify the owner, who was eventually determined to be a fellow Miccosukee resident.
The owner took the wayward emu home Monday morning.
Another emu was captured Thursday in Alabama, 12 days after it escaped from Serenity Animal Farm, located just outside of Clanton.
Emus are large flightless birds primarily found in Australia, but they are also known to live in the wild in Indonesia, New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and the Philippines. The birds can grow to be over 6 feet tall and can sprint up to 30 mph.
