He might technically be a flightless bird, but this ostrich sure can take off.
While out on a bike ride in South Africa, in preparation for an upcoming race, Oleksiy Mishchenko and his friends had the wildlife encounter of a lifetime. As the cyclists traveled down a long stretch of road, they found themselves joined by a very, VERY fast bird.
"Suddenly, I spotted a white ostrich on my left, then this beast jumped on the road from the right and started chasing my friends!" Mishchenko wrote on YouTube. "It was a little scary at first, but then I thought I gonna fell of [sic] my bike from laughter."
