What Happens If You Birdnap An Emu?
Papillion, NE - Four teens who brought a six-foot emu from Iowa and locked it in Gretna High School will be eligible for diversion.
The three youngest--who are not named because of their age--will not be charged and are eligible for juvenile diversion. A fourth, 18-year-old Andrew P. Urban, was charged with second degree trespassing and animal cruelty. He is being offered adult diversion.
Last month a janitor discovered the giant bird in the school's commons area; Sarpy County Sheriff's deputies had to round it up.
The emu now belongs to a Gretna company that puts on wildlife shows for parties and schools.
