So many weird things happened yesterday, from the shock of discovering Taylor Swift kissing Tom Hiddleston, to a runaway ostrich on the KL Federal Highway in Malaysia!

If you haven’t heard (which would be pretty impossible), yesterday evening videos of an ostrich named Chickaboo had been being going viral on social media platforms, especially Facebook.


Many were shocked at the sight of the bird sprinting on the highway, which seems like a scene out from a movie, where the odd situation had caused quite a stir among the drivers and motorcyclists on the highway.

Turns out, Chickaboo was actually being transported by Darren Chow – the owner of the ostrich – back to its farm, but while in the car the ostrich escaped by jumping out of the car window.

“We normally leave the window open for her during transport and it’s (usually) fine, but (Chickaboo) decided to jump out,” said Chow as to Channel News Asia.

While Chickaboo is now safe and sound in its farm in Semenyih, the internet have started to get really creative with plenty of memes, jokes and branding inspired by the ostrich!
