LISBON FALLS (WGME) -- A missing elderly emu has been found, according to the Rockin’ T Equine Sanctuary.

The 19-year-old emu was found on Friday on Edgecomb Road in Lisbon Falls.

The big bird escaped from the Rockin’ T Equine Sanctuary on Thursday.

Its owner says it escaped from his winter cage while its caretaker and a neighbor were transferring it into its summer cage.

It was found about five houses away from the sanctuary.

Officials say the emu is tired, but otherwise okay.
