One of the two ostriches that stirred buzz in the online community earlier this week after being spotted in a private subdivision in Quezon City has been reported to have passed away due to stress.
It can be recalled that on Tuesday, August 4 a video of an ostrich running amok the streets of a private subdivision in Quezon City went viral on social media.
The death of one of the two ostriches was confirmed by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Spokesperson Undersecretary Benny Antiporda which was reported by Luisito Santos in dzBB Super Radyo.
According to Antiporda, a report stating the death of the ostrich was sent to them by the owner, Jonathan Cruz.
Following this news, DENR shared that they will still have to call on the owner regarding the incident and will conduct further investigation to look for proof that it has died as well as to where the ostrich was buried.
Meanwhile, the other ostrich who survived has already been handed to the DENR and has been brought to the Biodiversity Management Bureau rescue center.
It can also be worth noting that according to the initial investigation of the DENR, the ostriches initially came from Misamis and were supposed to be sent to Nueva Ecija.
However, the DENR still does not have an answer as to why the ostriches were held in Quezon City and why they were able to run loose.
