A large, flightless bird native to Australia and New Guinea killed its Florida owner when it attacked him after he fell.
The Alachua County Fire Rescue Department told the Gainesville Sun that a cassowary killed the man Friday on his property near Gainesville, likely using its long claws. The victim, whose name was not released, was apparently breeding the birds, state wildlife officials said.
