WATCH VIDEO – DOG WALKER CONFRONTED BY 6FT BIRD LARGER THAN HIS BIG DOG

A man walking his dog was left stunned after seeing a massive RHEA bird – that was bigger than his large dog!

Shocked Jason Burford was out walking his dog Molly in the Forest of Dean when he stumbled upon the huge 6ft avian.

The 48-year-old was stopped in his tracks by the sight of the bird rounding a corner.

He then advanced towards creature and filmed it on his phone before it eventually ran off into the distance.

An animal expert has confirmed it is likely the bird escaped from a local collection.

Jason, who keeps chickens and bantams at home, said: “I hadn’t been there for years but I went on a whim as I used to live there.

“I just rounded the corner and there it was. I’m used to it though, living in the forest. I wasn’t worried.

“The dog is good around other animals. But, for someone else, it could have been a shock.

“It could have done an untrained dog some damage. Some don’t even come back to their owners in the garden.

“It’s a funny story but it could have been nasty. I was just trying to get it off the track.”

Retired Jason, from Cinderford, Glos., said the bird was almost six feet tall from where he was standing – making for an imposing sight.

He added: “I stopped videoing but you want to see it with its feathers fully stretched out!”

Mr Burford claims that the bird escaped from a nearby field where some animals had been abandoned.

He said: “I’ve since discovered where it came from. It’s been reported to the RSPCA.”
