Fred

Meet Fred

Fred was purchased at a livestock auction and when his owner encountered the wrath of a male ostrich in breeding season, he begged Noah’s Ark to take his “vicious dinosaur bird”.  With powerful legs equipped with sharp claws, ostriches can be extremely dangerous and are in no way the wimpy, unintelligent animals many people think they are.  Fred’s manners have improved, but only slightly.  When the weather is warm and it’s ostrich breeding season, keepers must be very careful not to agitate Fred, lest they be hastily chased from his enclosure!
