Emus Banned For Bad Behavior From Hotel In Australia's Outback

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Carol and Kevin have stolen their last French fry from the Yaraka Hotel. The owners of this pub in remote Australia are fed up. And they have banned these two emus for, quote, "bad behavior." No more using their long necks to pluck toast out of toasters. After the birds learned to climb the steps of the establishment, the bar owners put a rope up to keep them out. So far, Carol and Kevin have not figured out how to cross. When they do, is any breakfast safe? Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
