A Florida man has been jumped on and killed by a close relative of the emu, the cassowary, a human-sized flightless bird feared for its great claws and swift powerful movements. The man is said to be a breeder of the exotic birds.

The cassowary, which is native to Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and Australia, has been blamed for a vicious attack on its owner, a 75-year-old farmer named Marvin Hajos in Gainesville, Florida.

According to the Alachua County Fire Rescue Department, the heavy-built bird made a good use of its killer claws, which can grow up to 4 inches (10 centimeters) long when it pounced on its elderly owner.
