Jerusalem workers catch escaped ostrich

The Jerusalem municipality clarifies that the ostrich running around the city’s Gilo neighborhood had not escaped from the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, but was illegally owned by a local resident.

“The owners told the veterinary services inspector that he had purchased the ostrich (a female) as a chick illegally in the Kafr Kassem market and raised her ever since, without notifying the city or a veterinarian,” the municipality writes on Facebook.

The ostrich will be sent to the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo.
