Memorialize the Calvert County Emu

This petition had 196 supporters

In early 2011 an emu was running on the loose throughout the Huntingtown area in Calvert County. This large flightless beauty ran throughout the community striking fascination and wonder to all those who saw him, but sadly just a few days after its arrival, it was shot dead by a local hunter. While the ostrich-like creature only spent a few days here, it is the duty of the people of Calvert County to preserve its memory. It's legacy has been unrecognized for far too long. This petition is calling for a permanent memorial to the emu to be placed somewhere in the Huntingtown area so future generations will never forget the events that transpired. Please consider signing this petition if you believe that the emu deserves such a memorial.

Thank you,

A concerned citizen
