A Moa On Broad Street
An escaped moa runs down Broad Street, Nantucket. I thought that we would prefer an image of Broad Street. I would not want moas brought into captivity. The chicks in New Zealand were the size of turkeys. The adult:
has a chicken-like head bigger than a German shepherd's;
looks fixedly stupid as well as terrified when escaping;
is twelve feet tall;
weighs more than a cow;
has a six-foot neck, a bulbous body and enormous three-toed feet;
can snap a neck with a kick;
causes panic and chaos on the street;
is stopped by Marian with her katana, then bagged by its keepers.
No, thanks. Leave them in New Zealand.
