Emu, looking for love, briefly escapes home

The bird is believed to have mistaken a Frisbee golf net for a mate.

Erasmo the emu is safely back at his home in Grant, Minn., after a brief escape Thursday morning that drew a response from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office .

The flightless bird native to Australia was likely looking for a mate when he climbed the fence and ventured into the backyard of the Cedar Ridge Treatment Center, said his owner, Jaime Benner.

The center has a Frisbee golf net in the yard that kind of looks like a female emu, “if you squint your eyes,” she joked.

Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies who responded to the animal complaint at 7:44 a.m. Thursday reported a “loose emu in the area,” a spokesperson said. Erasmo was returned to Benner’s property, the Idylwood Equestrian Center, by one of her employees.

Erasmo had been pacing back and forth along the fence for a few days, leading to concerned calls from the treatment center, Benner said. She told them it was probably just the Frisbee golf net, though “he looked like he was having an issue, clearly.”

Benner took in Erasmo as a rescue after he was left on another farm without proper care, she said. She’s taken in other large bird rescues as well, and today has three emus and two ostriches on her horse boarding farm.

The birds “live like show horses” with their own stalls and large fields to run in, she added.

“Emus are great. They’re so sheepish and awkward. We’ve never had a bad emu moment,” she said. “I’m kind of surprised more people don’t have them.”

Benner said the birds get along well with the horses and other animals she has, including a pig and a rooster.

“The horses are fine,” she said. “UPS men, not so much.”

I need to use that as a quote somewhere. Just not quite sure where.

A Minnesota man was arrested after an apparent outburst inside a restaurant where he allegedly began throwing Skittles at people inside the establishment.

The incident happened at a restaurant in Mankato, Minnesota on June 23 when 19-year-old Tristan Stetina allegedly entered a local restaurant when he "began yelling and throwing Skittles at employees and customers."

According to a statement of probable cause, one of the victims told police officers that she was "hit in the back with a Skittle" which caused a "stinging pain in her back area."

Responding officers saw Skittles "all over the ground" as well as a bag of the popular candy located near the garbage.

When police located Stetina and arrested him, the suspect allegedly "wrapped his leg around" one of the officers, trying to trip him, the document states.

He also attempted to pull away and "break free" as he was being placed under arrest.

In total, it took three police officers to get control of the the suspect, according to the probable cause statement.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A man charged in the museum heist of a pair of ruby slippers that Judy Garland wore in the “The Wizard of Oz” pleaded guilty Friday in a deal that could keep him out of prison due to his failing health, but only cleared up some of the mystery that dates back 18 years.

Terry Jon Martin, 76, pleaded guilty to a single count of theft of a major artwork. The shoes were stolen in 2005 from the Judy Garland Museum in the late actor’s hometown of Grand Rapids, Minnesota, and recovered by the FBI in 2018.

No one was arrested until Martin, who lives near Grand Rapids, was charged this year. During his change-of-plea hearing in federal court in Duluth, Martin said he used a hammer to smash the glass of the museum door and display case to take the slippers. He said he thought the slippers had real rubies and that he had hoped to sell the gems. But when a fence told him the rubies were glass, he said he got rid of the slippers.

Firefighters dodged almost every kick from a flailing trapped horse weighing nearly two-thirds of a ton before it was freed from its stall window at a western Hennepin County ranch, officials said Monday.

The equine extrication Sunday afternoon at the 61-acre Horse Play Ranch in Corcoran took 30 to 45 minutes during a mission the firefighters were not trained to carry out, said Loretto Fire Chief Jeff Leuer, whose department serves a portion of the neighboring community.

The horse was stuck in a small opening about 5 feet from the ground. As the four firefighters sized up how to go about the task, the horse “was frightened and scared,” the chief said. “And it was in some pain. ... It was trying to free itself, but we were able to calm it down and get it extricated.”

The firefighters removed one of the stall’s walls andcut some of the metal bars to make the window larger to free the animal, the chief said.

Longtime ranch owner Mary Soligny said 15-yearold King was brought into the stall from the pasture for some rest “and he unexpectedly and quickly attempted to leap through the small feed window of his stall. ”

Soligny said a call from her daughter brought her to the stall, where she quickly realized she needed the Fire Department to carry out the rescue.

After he was dislodged, Soligny said, “King was sweaty and had a small cut on his lip but otherwise good.”

Leuer said one of his firefighters was minorly injured during the tricky assignment, went to the hospital for treatment and was soon released.

The horse inflicted the injury with a kick, “but I don’t know if you want to put that in the paper” where it landed, the chief said. “We’ll just say the groin area. He’s recovering. He’ll be fine.”

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection dog sniffed out something unusual in luggage from a traveler returning from Africa — mummified monkeys. The passenger returning from a visit to the Democratic Republic of Congo reported that the luggage contained dried fish, but an inspection at Boston Logan Airport revealed dead and dehydrated bodies of four monkeys, agents said. The traveler said he brought the monkeys into the U.S. for his own consumption.
