Machine guns in Helsby – over a bird?

I have a google alert that keeps track of the mention Helsby – partly to see if I’m mentioned somewhere on the web and also to keep track of other Helsby’s and also the town Helsby in the UK.

There was a recent article the other day where police were called, with machine guns, to help capture an escaped rhea (similar to an ostrich). I can’t believe that birds are that dangerous that armed police were needed. I think someone was watching too much Jurassic Park.  The full article “Escaped Rhea causes chaos at Helsby High School” is online for more amusement..
