Marvin Hojas, who breeds the giant birds, was killed on April 19 when one of his cassowaries attacked him after falling in the backyard of his home in Gainesville, the sheriff's office in Alachua, Florida said.
The San Diego Zoo says cassowaries are the "most dangerous bird in the world".
Well, this cassowary – and a second cassowary – and all the other Hojas pets will be sold on Saturday at the Gulf Coast Livestock Auction.
"One of Marvin's wishes was for his animals to be sold at auction as soon as possible," says the Gulf Coast Livestock Auction in a Facebook post.
The group says Hojas has been a friend for years, and they would miss him greatly.
In addition to the cassowaries, Hojas & # 39; emus, macaws, marmosets, lemurs and exotic animals are offered for sale.
Although cassowaries are flightless, they can jump up to three feet in the air ̵
This claw, it is said, can cut open almost anything that beats her.
