UPDATE: CTV News reports that Lucy has been found safe.
Lucy, the emu who has been ruffling feathers in Nanaimo since escaping his farm earlier this week, is still on the loose.
A YouTube video shot Sunday and posted to YouTube on Thursday shows the 70-kilogram bird strolling along Nanaimo River Road.
Since Lucy went missing, the runaway bird has been spotted around Nanaimo, but has yet to be captured and returned to Cassidy farm where he was raised by humans.
The bird is strong, fast, and loves grapes. He was discovered to be male after he was named.
The story has prompted puns and jokes galore on social media.

"If I was a male emu with a girl's name like Lucy I'd run away too"— amelie gero (@ameliegrr) March 21, 2014
@mattsekeres tell me I'm wrong, strapping a GoPro to Lucy the male emu would make for riveting television— Trevor Wiseman (@WisemanDoe) March 21, 2014
Even a Twitter account for Lucy has been created.
Spring has sprung, the grass is riz, do you know where this emu is? If you do call Tim 250-591-6131 or @Namaimorcmp #EmuOnTheLoose— Lucy the Emu (@Lucyontheloose) March 20, 2014
