BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. —

Drivers came to a halt in Cape Canaveral on Wednesday when they spotted a large bird running down the middle of A1A.

A deputy's dashboard camera recorded "Taco" the emu on the hunt for a suitable mate.

They finally captured the big bird and returned it to its owner.

This comes just one week after two pot-bellied pigs, named Leather and Lace went on their own hunt for mates in downtown Rockledge and had to be recaptured.
