An ostrich was seen rushing over Lahore's canal route in a video, with neighbouring cars and motorcycle riders avoiding the bird. A man is even seen waving at the bird, while it was running.
A couple of bikers kept on filming the ostrich and slowing down or changing routes to avoid hitting it.
The internet has been flooded with video clips of birds flying through the crowded streets of Lahore.

According to several reports, there were two ostriches. One of the ostriches perished, according to ARY News, when a guy tried to grasp a bird off his neck while running on Lahore's canal road.
A video of an ostrich racing across a Karachi street had also gone viral earlier in January.

Ostriches are the fastest runners of any bird or two-legged animal, capable of sprinting at speeds of over 70 km/hr and covering up to 5 metres in a single stride.
When threatened, ostriches flee, despite the fact that their powerful, long legs are capable of killing a human or a potential predator such as a lion with a forward kick.
