Absurd. This perhaps is the best term to describe the year. With everyone now vigilant of the surprises 2020 still has in store for us, we thought we were ready for anything. Then comes an ostrich running amok in a subdivision in Quezon City earlier this morning.

Who let the ostrich out? CTTO

Videos of the Struthio camelus is now circulating online, prompting the #Jumanji and #ostrich to trend on Philippine Twitter. Both are still in the top 10 trending topics in the country. Here are some tweets and posts about it.

If like us, you have so many questions (and ostriches)—yes, it was reported that there were two—running through your head, we’re about to answer everything.

Warning: video contains cuss words.

Dino Rivera, a resident of the subdivision caught on camera the ostrich chasing a car in Mapayapa Village 3, 9 a.m. today. The animal apparently slipped away from its owner.

Two videos came out earlier this morning. Here’s the second.

Fun fact, ostriches are the fastest runners among any birds or other two-legged animals. They can sprint at over 70 kilometers per hour, covering up to five miles in a single stride. These escaped ostriches are following their instincts to sprint. Because who wouldn’t want to run away from all the craziness right now, right?
