The young cassowary 'Rosie' has an injured foot. This week National Park's Rangers came out to Coquette Point three times to try to capture her, however, they were not successful.
Fortunately 'Rosie's' foot is getting better and her limp is still pronounced but not severe. She is searching for food and other than the injured foot she appears to be in good condition.
Capturing cassowaries is always problematic as often the stress of the capture and transportation results in the death of the bird.
The most important thing to do now is to monitor 'Rosies' condition and appraise the progress of her recovery
