Anyone missing an emu?

Ever look eye-to-eye at an emu?

If you have, you must be pretty tall - since the flightless birds from Australia can tower over a 6-foot-3 man.

That man: Roger Leseberg, who says he went outside his home near Allentown, Pennsylvania to check out what he thought was a big wild turkey.

But when he went for a closer look, he got an eyeful of emu.

And when it raised its head, Leseberg says it was much taller than he was.

How'd the emu get there?

Leseberg says authorities told him there are some emu farms in the area - but so far no one has claimed the bird.
