Cassowary Sightings Bike Log #9
December 9, 2010
Watched a large adult cassowary sprint across the Tully/Mission Beach road to safety..just missing being scuttled by an oncoming car. Bird was definitely upset...it ran on along track next to banana plantings for about 60yds before pulling up to walk, but every now and then it would do a short sprint.
Watched large adult run across road in front of car! Between Lindsay road, Carmoo and Sellars Banana farm. Very close call as car did not stop although it did slow down a bit, but it was still moving.
