Meep Meep: Emu Zooms Around Enclosure at Brookfield Zoo in Illinois

An emu at the Brookfield Zoo in Brookfield, Illinois, zoomed around his new, larger enclosure upon being moved for the spring season.

Footage shared by the Brookfield Zoo shows emu, Echo, racing around his new space.

“Today, for the first time this spring, Brookfield Zoo’s two male emus were given access to their larger outdoor habitat that they share with the western grey kangaroos on the south side of Australia House,” wrote the zoo in a press release sent to Storyful. “Dill, who is 25, took it at a slower pace, but 6-year-old Echo ran around stretching his legs.” Credit: Lynette Kleisner/CZS-Brookfield Zoo via Storyful
