You Think an Insurance Company Would Believe This?

You have the little mishaps in your car, the fender benders, knocking down lights at your exe's, etc. Then you have to call the insurance company. I wonder what it was like for this guy in Greece who had to report that an ostrich jumped on his car.

A runaway ostrich that eluded police caused severe damage when it attacked a Mercedes car during a three-hour rampage.

"Somehow it got out of its pen. We sent two patrols after it, but in the meantime it caused some damage to the bonnet and bumper of a Mercedes before we caught it," a police official in Cyprus said.

The ostrich caused considerable damage when it pounced on the car, the daily Phileleftheros reported.

The ostrich is the largest of birds and can weigh at least 400 pounds. It is also the fastest creature on two legs and can run up to 43 miles per hour;

"It took us more than three hours to catch it," the police official said. Yahoo News

How the hell would one catch an ostrich?! He could put his head in the sand and totally disappear. ;)
