Rhonda Farrell, founder of Bella View Farm Animal Sanctuary in Franklin, said the emu was found in poor condition on a Wisconsin farm.
June 14 (News) — A baby emu at a North Carolina sanctuary enjoys restored mobility after being fitted with a custom-made wheelchair.
Farrell said the emu had a slipped tendon and was being kept in a carry case before being taken to her shelter, which specializes in special needs animals.
Farrell had the emu named Lemu fitted with a custom wheelchair made by Walkin’ Pets. Farrell said there are also seven goats using wheelchairs at their rescue.
Walkin’ Pets posted a video on YouTube of Lemu walking with the help of his new wheelset.
“The wheels stimulate him and keep him from getting depressed,” Farrell told the company.
