Anyone who has ever had a dog has played fetch. You throw the ball, the dog chases after it, picks it up and brings it back. But what happens when you play fetch with an emu? Something totally adorable, of course!
A little girl throws a tennis ball across the yard and much to her delight the emu chases after it (we think the large bird is equally delighted). However, once the emu catches up to the ball, it doesn’t quite know what to do—you know, being an emu and all. Instead of picking up the ball with its beak, the bird hops around in what looks like an excited victory dance that depicts what the bird is thinking: “I found it! I found it!”
The video is at once cute and funny, making this something we’ll probably be watching all day long. We think you will, too.
Let us know what you think of this emu’s fetching abilities in the comments.
