  • One of the world’s most dangerous birds kills its owner in Florida

The cassowary is a "large, flightless bird most closely related to the emu", according to the San Diego Zoo.

The death was an accident, officials said.

The newspaper reported that a cassowary could be seen on the property on Saturday, along with a smaller exotic bird. "The cassowary involved remains secured on private property at this time". The incident is being investigated by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission and our local Sheriff's Department.

"My understanding is that the gentleman was in the vicinity of the bird and at some point fell".

Potentially already injured from his fall, Hajos would have been in the most vulnerable position for an attack by his pet. Emergency responders arrived and whisked him off to a nearby hospital but he ultimately succumbed to his injuries.

Despite their large size - females can weigh up to 167 pounds, and males 121 pounds - cassowaries can jump almost 7 feet in the air, run up to 31 miles per hour, and are excellent swimmers, according to the zoo. It's known for its unusual, distinctive headgear, known as a casque, and for its deadly kick, which earned it the title of "most risky bird in the world".

A 75-year-old Florida man was killed by a cassowary - a large, flightless bird native to Australia and New Guinea - on the farm where he breeds them on Friday.

Each of its three-toed foot has a dagger-like claw on the inner toe that is up to 4 inches long, according to the San Diego Zoo.

"The cassowary can slice open any predator or potential threat with a single swift kick".

The cassowary is listed as a Class II wildlife in Florida, which means the danger they can pose to humans and other animals is known. The zoo says it is second heaviest bird in the world, after its cousin the ostrich. "Powerful legs help the cassowary run up to 31 miles per hour (50 kilometers per hour) through the dense forest underbrush". The birds also have the ability to jump almost 7 feet straight up in the air and they are excellent swimmers.
