Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. A large, bird native to Australia and New Guinea attacked and killed its owner on a farm in Florida. The man, identified as 75-year-old Marvin Hajos, raised cassowaries and was attacked by either one or two of these flightless birds. They have often been called “living dinosaurs” and are considered one of the most dangerous birds in the world. They can run as fast as 30 miles per hour and can grow as large as six feet tall. It appears he was injured after falling on a path near their enclosure Friday. Paramedics ended up finding Marvin just after 10 a.m. that morning and transported him to the hospital where he died of his injuries. The San Diego Zoo’s website calls cassowaries the world’s most dangerous bird with a four-inch, dagger-like claw on each foot.
