An emu was found wandering in Kirtling near Newmarket on Saturday and is being cared for locally whilst his owners are traced.
RSPCA officer Jane Folley said it must have “an unexpected sight” for the home owners when they saw the emu in their drive.
“Birds this large can be difficult to catch so we were lucky in this case that he could be secured in the stable,” she said.
“The fact that he is this tame makes me think he is very likely to be someone’s missing pet.
“We urge anyone who knows where he may have come from to call us. We would love to take Eric back home.”
