A couple of days ago I took a short walk out on the historic Iditarod Trail with my four emu friends: Herman, Matilda, Mariah, and Sam McGee! Although just two months old, they were an absolute burst of high energy, racing amidst the birch and spruce! When we came to a large swamp on the trail, we returned home. This old historic trail has seen much over the years, but I think emus running wild on the trail is probably a first. Emus became “legal” in Alaska this past July 1st, the same day as our first emu (Herman) was hatched! -GB Jones (Sept. 5, 2022)
Meet Herman, "Alaska’s first emu!" On the morning of July 1, 2022 this little emu emerged from his thick shell after having spent over 50 days in it! The State of Alaska made it legal to own emus in Alaska … effective on the exact same day as Herman broke out of his shell! On July 3rd, 4th and 5th three other emus (unrelated to Herman) were hatched. (Matilda, Mariah and Sam McGee.)
