(WPRI) – Two emu’s went for an adventure in Freetown on Friday, after people reported seeing them running near the railroad tracks on Braley road Friday.

Freetown Animal Control posted on their Facebook page that they were only able to catch one of the emus at first, after good Samaritans stopped and blocked the road to prevent the birds from being hit and to allow an Animal Control Officer to capture it.

The second emu was found later by an Animal Control Officer in Lakeville.

Freetown Animal Control posted to their Facebook page a few hours later saying the emus were returned to their home safely.

“Thank you so much to everyone who helped catch them, put the word out and offered a safe place for them,” the post said.
