Move Over, Horatio! Step Aside, Grissom!

...this is a job for CSI: Tealing (Avian Division)!
Mr Donaldson, 39, a janitor at Dundee University, said he believes the mystery bird was killed on the spot by a bigger animal.
And, clearly, he's an expert...
He said: 'I'm baffled by what this bird was. 'Some people have speculated it might have been an ostrich but it doesn't look exactly like an ostrich to me.
Janitor training at Stirling University is more intensive than I thought!
'And even if that's what it was, what was it doing running about an abandoned airfield?
'I can think of no logical explanation.
Really? Not going for the UFO link then?
'The bird has clearly been killed here, by what I don't know. It looks like it's been moved around by whatever was eating it.
'But it was still fresh, and it stank a bit.'
Ah. Right. The possibility that it's a dead pet that someone's dumped for the foxes is out of the question, then?
As yet, no one has been able to come up with an explanation for the bizarre find.
Eh..? I just did!

Bigger animal? It'd have to have been something like a tiger or lion. Or a pack of hyenas. Probably climate change related...

Camperdown Park in Dundee has a small zoo and the last time I was there they had emus and, yes ostriches.

Just sayin'

It probably got bored of train spotting.

"What was it doing running down an abandoned airfield?"

Ostriches cannot take off by virtue of being a leg overweight. Merry Christmas to you and all your readers, Julia.

Bound to be!

"Merry Christmas to you and all your readers, Julia."

And I hope you had a good one!
