The worst drought in Australia’s history has forced the Emus to search for food and water in the Streets of Australia of New South Wales. Large groups of emus have arrived in the city of Broken Hill, where locals have been providing both water and food. Emma Singleton, the spokeswoman for the Council of Rescue and Rehabilitation of Australian Native Animals of Broken Hill, said they have been detecting 14 emus in the city.

The rescue unit does not try to chase the birds in the streets. However, he cautions residents to care for the animals, since five emus had been hit by traffic in the last week.
