A family of ostriches is on the loose around a village in East Ayrshire, Scotland. The Scottish SPCA said there had been several sightings of the adult bird in Patna last week.
They have advised members of the public not to approach the adult ostrich which will be protective of its young and could become "extremely aggressive" if it believes it is being challenged.
It is unclear where the ostriches have escaped from.
Animal Rescue Officer Alistair Hill said: "Anyone in the area who spots the ostrich or its young should call us as soon as possible so we can keep an eye on where these birds are.
"We are warning members of the public not to approach the adult ostrich and to especially avoid approaching its young as ostriches can be very protective and can become extremely aggressive."
