A family of ostriches has been spotted on the loose in the Scottish village of East Ayrshire.
The Scottish SPCA has said it’s unclear where the exotic birds came from as no one is the area appears to have lost an ostrich.
They have also warned members of the public not to approach the animals as they may feel threatened and become aggressive.
“We are warning members of the public not to approach the adult ostrich and to especially avoid approaching its young as ostriches can be very protective and can become extremely aggressive,” said animal rescue officer Alistair Hill.
The animals have been on the run since this morning and have not yet been caught.
Locals find the scenario hilarious, however, and are taking to Twitter to share their thoughts, while someone even took the opportunity to make an account for the ostrich.
