This is the bizarre moment a rhea escaped from a farm – and appeared to chase a rider down the road.

A member of the Warwickshire hunt appears to be less than happy after coming up against the enormous bird – that is believed to have escaped in the village of Avon Dasset, Warks.

A witness, who asked not to be named, said: “The huntsmen’s hounds were barking near a small holding that contained ostriches from a nearby farm.

“As a result a young rhea escaped and started running on the road – it was very close to the M40 motorway.”
