Ostrich on the Loose: Runaway Bird Breaks All the Rules

Description:

Drivers in southwestern China had to share the road with a runaway ostrich. The free bird sprinted down sidewalks, through intersections and across roundabouts. Dashcam video showed the ostrich in action, and traffic officials were able to watch surveillance footage of the errant avian on a monitor. Though they can't fly, ostriches are among the fastest land animals. They can hit speeds of over 40 miles an hour. Fortunately, no people or animals were hurt in the caper.


The search is on for a roughly five-foot alligator lurking in the waters of Chicago's Humboldt Park Lagoon. Chicago Police say they received a number of calls about the gator, calling it an "unusual news day" and notified animal control to find and relocate the animal to a zoo - though it's still yet to be found.
President Trump responded to a question on whether he'd cooperate with the House Judiciary Committee's subpoena of key White House documents saying, "I cooperate all the time with everybody."
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league's personal conduct policy applies to owners and players alike, but he also said he wouldn't discipline New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft for sex solicitation charges until "after we get all the facts." John Breech of CBSSports.com joins CBSN to discuss what this means for Goodell's reputation as a strict disciplinary enforcer.
It was a moment of crisis when a man called 911 after being viciously attacked by a bird. "Can you send an ambulance? I'm bleeding to death," said Marvin Hajos, 75, during the desperate emergency call. Police say he was attacked by his pet cassowary, which is said to be the most dangerous bird in the world, known for its dagger-like claws. Sadly, Hajos died of the injuries inflicted by his own bird.
