Emmanuel the emu is currently on the mend and has been showing signs of improvement after relentless care from owner Taylor Blake.

Emmanuel the emu rushed into our lives with his adorable antics but currently, there’s sad news about everyone’s favourite bird. His owner Taylor Blake shared how Emmanuel was down with bird flu after the illness took down most of the animals on her farm in Florida. Things have, however, begun to look up as Emmanuel is currently on the mend and has been showing signs of improvement. After a bad bout, the emu is now able to reposition himself and drink water by himself. He’s undergoing extensive physical therapy with the help of Blake.

Blake and her girlfriend have been putting their all in nursing Emmanuel back to health, and Blake has requested that the public keep them in their prayers. She trusts that her emu is going to make a full recovery. “As of now, the only birds left on the farm are Emmanuel and Rico. Please say a prayer for us. Please keep us in your thoughts. It is an absolute miracle that he has made it this far, and I will never give up on him. The road to a full recovery will be long, but I am dedicated," Blake wrote in part in an emotional Twitter thread.
