'World's most dangerous bird' kills its owner
The bird was reportedly being kept at the property near Gainesville as a pet. It has since been secured at the site, the Miami Herald reported.
A cassowary is a large, flightless bird native to the tropical forests of New Guinea and north-eastern Australia.
It can grow up to 6ft tall and are described by San Diego Zoo as the most dangerous bird in the world due to their "dagger-like claws".
The organisation says: "The cassowary can slice open any predator or potential threat with a single swift kick.
A cassowary can also jump 7 feet into the air and run up to 31 mph.
The southern cassowary is considered endangered under Australia law and “vulnerable” on the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List of Threatened Species.
