Locals in the village of the Philippines’s capital encountered a strange violator of the ongoing coronavirus lockdown. There were two ostriches on the loose, one of them being chased by a goat.

According to a report of the South China Morning Post, a witness was walking down the street in one of the villages in Quezon City to buy from a nearby store.

He was shocked to see an ostrich running chasing a car.

Meanwhile, another resident recorded a video of the large bird running toward a subdivision gate. It stopped when a security guard lowered the barrier.

In Filipino, the security shouted at the bird “You don’t have an ID, you can’t leave.” The ostrich turned around for a few meters and headed back again to the gate.

“I said, you don’t have a gate pass, you can’t leave,” the guard told the bird firmly.

During the community quarantine in the country, only the residents who have passes and permits can go out.

Meanwhile, the government implemented stricter lockdown restriction again in the capital and nearby provinces due to the surge of COVID-19 cases.

Filipino netizens immediately made memes on the videos of ostriches. Further, others were even referencing the sighting that came from the movie Jumanji.

The story is about an enchanted board game that summons wild animals.
