'World's Most Dangerous Bird' Kills Florida Man on His Farm

'World's Most Dangerous Bird' Kills Florida Man on His Farm”

A 75-year-old man was attacked and killed by a large exotic bird he kept as a pet on his property in Florida, known to experts as the "world's most unsafe bird", authorities said. It can run up to 31 miles per hour through dense underbrush, jump nearly 7 feet into the air and is a skilled swimmer, so it can deftly fend off threats, the zoo says.

A farmer who bred exotic species in Florida has been killed by a cassowary, which has been called the world's most risky bird for its "murderous" claws and powerful kicks.

Deputy chief Jeff Taylor said: "It looks like it was accidental". Two birds were on the property but it was unclear whether both attacked Hajos, per USA Today.

Lieutenant Brett Rhodenizer with the Alachua County Sheriff's Office says at this time, it seems the attack was "a tragic accident".

The largest cassowary species can stand up to 1.2 - 1.7 meters (5.6 feet) in height and weigh up to 76 kilograms (167 pounds).

A sign warning drivers to be aware of cassowary birds in Australia.

Cassowaries are eaten in parts of Papua New Guinea but in the USA but are sought after by collectors of exotic birds.

Authorities believe the bird used its long claws to attack the man who was breeding the birds, according to state wildlife officials.

Alachua County Sheriff Department said the man was probably injured by the bird's claws.

A spokeswoman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission said that to own a cassowary, owners should have "substantial experience" and meet specific cage requirements.

She said the commission lists the cassowary as a type of wildlife that can "pose a danger to people".

'We're looking to confirm our suspicions that this is a disgusting accident for the man and his family, ' Lt. Lt. Brett Rhodenizer said, according to the Miami Herald.
