VIRGINIA BEACH -An unusual sight in a Va. Beach neighborhood Thursday - an Emu roaming the streets in the Highgate Greens neighborhood.

Animal Control officers went out to capture it, but the two officers were having a hard time locating it, said spokesman Wayne Gilbert.

Gilbert says a man was jogging on Seaboard Road this morning and the Emu followed him to Highgate Green.

People in the neighborhood believe it belongs to two girls who live in an adjacent neighborhood.

Gilbert says the owner and jogger were able to coax the animal safely back to its home at a nearby farm.
