wow I know the biggest breeder of these birds in the U.S. , who is here in Florida and have visited his place, I did not know someone was doing it up in North Florida too. The guy was 75? Too old to be handling Cassowary. See this makes me think the retarded state of FL will upgage the classification to keep them and make it harder. I better speed up my timeline to get some before that happens, sigh.
This sounds awesome. I'm gonna get one. How badass would it be to own one.I'll update my own post. I got the 411 on this whole situation. He was using cattle prods to keep them at bay when entering their pens, and then thinking he had them "trained" he got sloppy and would enter the pens with just some pvc pipe. Well one day he went in there to collect eggs, which is of course when both the male and the female are together and VERY protective/aggressive, and they challenged him and he fell over and so they pounced. Cut him deep before he managed to get out and since he lived in bum fucked egypt the ambulance had a very hard time finding his place. By the time they got to him he was already on his way out from blood loss.
In his will he had the requirement to sell off his entire animal inventory within 7 days or some such. All his animals went for way above market price at the auction. The cassowaries (he has 4 total) went for average of 11k each. No I did not buy his, but I did take my own advice from my first post above. These birds are 100 percent modern velociraptors, and you may occasionally see a mild mannered one, but most are highly territorial and have the leg strength, the technique and the weapon on the end of their feet to back up that aggression. None of the other big birds have all three of those things together.
