WILLOUGHBY HILLS, Ohio (WJW) — A local police department’s search for a loose emu in Northeast Ohio is now over.

The Willoughby Hills police department took to Facebook Wednesday evening to say that an emu, a flightless bird native to Australia that’s not too unlike an ostrich, was on the loose. The bird was reportedly seen in the Maple Grove and Maple Hills area.

According to police, the emu has been found and reunited with its owner.

The police department thanked everyone in the community who helped with the investigation.
