An ostrich decided to chase cyclists in South Africa!

As biologists say, ostriches usually prefer to avoid humans. But this one is not that shy! With no hesitation he joined a Friday cycle ride and made a good job keeping the speed!


The participants of the Cape Argus Tour were on their road to the Cape of Good Hope, when they saw two ostriches aside. The couple seemed calm and normal, when the male one, which is recognized by darker feathers, suddenly jumped on the road! The ostrich easily entered the race and joined the cyclists, who were moving about 30 miles (50 kilometers) an hour.

I wonder what his true ambition was.... his real reason for chasing the cyclists. I watched another video where some breeders told a guy that if he went in the ostrich pen and started to run, the males would give chase with intentions of attacking him. So it's like a, "Hey! Hey why are you running? Yeah, you better run!" lol

I'm always suspicious of ostriches whenever I come across any. So no surprises for me here. Funny as hell though...
