An ostrich was filmed racing traffic and now she’s quite the celebrity

So video footage of Chickaboo, a six-month-old ostrich spotted running away from her problems on the Malaysian highway, has unsurprisingly been a big hit online.

And it’s not just the video that’s made her popular – Chickaboo’s story sounds like the script to an animated film.

Her owner Darren Chow bought her as a chick, but when she grew too big for his land, he reluctantly decided to take her to the Ostrich Wonderlands farm where she could spend more time with her ostrich pals.

But stubborn Chickaboo was having none of that, so simply escaped from the moving vehicle through an open window and made a break for it along one of the busiest roads in Kuala Lumpur.

It made for a bizarre scene and the footage has everything – action, comedy, suspense. All it’s missing is some epic background music.

Thankfully, Chickaboo was safely rescued, and now everyone wants a piece of the star of the show.
