Runaway emu 'Taco' strolls down busy highway

A runaway bird is looking for love in all the wrong places- a busy highway in Brevard County, Florida.

Because emus don't fly, Taco took to the streets in his search. The 4-year-old, 5' tall bird peered into cars as he walked up and down the highway. A sheriff's dash cam caught the big bird on video.

His owner said it's mating season- and the bird got out of his yard.
