Ostrich chases cyclists in South Africa

New video footage has emerged showing a team of cyclists being chased by an ostrich in Cape Town, ahead of the Argus cycle race.

According to Oleksiy Mishchenko, his group came down to South Africa for the Cape Argus Tour, and went on a pre-race ride to the Cape of Good Hope on Friday.

“Suddenly, I spotted a white ostrich on my left, then this beast jumped on the road from the right and started chasing my friends.”

“It was a little scary at first”, Mishchenko said. “The ostrich didn’t have any problem to keep up at 50km/h and apparently they do 70km/h with no sweat,” he said.

“Luckily the creature decided to leave us alone, as we were running out of road,” Mishchenko said.
