(CNN) – Two Brezen Emu siblings, named Kevin and Carol, have been banned from a hotel in the Outback, Australia for bad behavior.
Co-owner Chris Gimblett told CNN Travel that Emus once welcomed visitors and would pop in for some biscuits every now and then. Then he learned to climb the stairs.
“Passengers have to be very cautious with Eamus, as they will thump their heads in the doors of a caravan and drink all the coffee without dropping the mug and stealing their toast, and if you have a barbecue watch because they’ll take everything , “He says.
“They come to the hotel when they finish breakfast in the caravan park, and last week they found out how to walk up the hotel stairs.”
Last year, emu siblings Kevin and Carol managed to gain access to the Yarka Hotel Bar.

As a result, they have to put a chain rope at the top of the steps, along with a sign that reads: “Emu is banned from this establishment for bad behavior. Please get yourself through the emu barrier Let go and reconnect. ”
Why the ban? Gimbalat says: “You don’t want to come between emu and food.”
“They have got very sharp beaks and they are like a vacuum cleaner where food is concerned, so we were worried about them going into the dining room and causing havoc,” he explains.
And then it is after this.
“Because they eat too much, their toilet habits are very frequent … Imagine a slow bowl of oatmeal that you flip from a height of meters – splatter is very effective.”
Spreading 1.9 meters tall (6.2 ft), according to the conservation group Birdlife Australia, the emu is Australia’s largest native bird and one of the world’s largest bird species. Ames belong to the ostrich and another native Australian bird, Casovari.
“They are not very user friendly, they don’t enjoy being tapped, but they are fine for a short walk with their necks.” Says Gimbet of Ames.
The small Yarka Hotel has four rooms, along with a campground and pub.

This is not the first time siblings have committed mischief. Last year, before they learned to climb the front steps, someone left a gate open, allowing them access to the hotel through the back.
“One came in and went behind the bar and the other came and stood in front of him,” Gimblett says.
As for the origins of Amus, he says it all began about two years ago, when eight eggs – seemingly – were found in the town and given to a wildlife lover.
Gimblett, who moved to Yaraka with his wife in 1990 after selling them to his wife, “he wrapped them in blankets and after some time he heard screams coming from inside the eggs, so he tapped them with a spoon and he Put on a hat. ” Brisbane.
“Some of the emus walked out, and we’re left with two people who are permanent residents in the city. Kevin and Carol are their names, but Carol ends up being a male.”
