Florida Farm owner Taylor Blake has revealed that her emu, who became famous after being featured in several viral videos she posts on social media, is not dying from bird flu as she thought before, and just tense.

“Emanuel Todd Lopez tested negative for avian flu at two different labs: swab, stool and blood,” she tweeted Saturday.

Blake even reached out Bindi Irwin for help treating her emu in the name of Emmanuel Todd Lopez, but was turned down because Irwin didn’t think she had the experience to help.

Fortunately, Blake discovered that her emu’s tests for the deadly disease and the symptoms that plagued him earlier had come back negative. as reported by DailyMail.com“it all happened from stress.”

The roughly 5-foot-8, 120-pound emu has a “long road” to recovery, Blake said, but insists the lovable animal, which is temporarily unable to walk because of its illness, is “a warrior.”

“He does not have the virus and he is not actively shedding the virus. God is good! Thank you for your prayers, kind words and support. Always trust your intuition!’

The pair went viral on TikTok and other social media over the past year, with viewers laughing along with the whimsical birds’ antics, which included fights and hugs.

Blake said Emanuel was “incredibly shocked that the state came in and put our flock to sleep,” but added that euthanasia was “necessary” but still “stressed him out a lot.”

Earlier this month, she explained that she had lost all her chickens and ducks, as well as many geese, turkeys and swans.

The farmer, who owns Knuckle Bump Farms in south Florida, detailed Emanuel’s problems and where things went wrong.

“He stopped eating the day they depopulated,” she said.

“Emus cannot afford not to eat, they rely on proper nutrition. We didn’t see him drinking either, he isolated himself in the farthest corner of the pasture, away from the people in protective suits,” she continued on Twitter.

Passing out in the middle of the night because he was “so weak and dehydrated”, Emmanuel panicked and thrashed for hours.

Although the flightless bird was too dehydrated for the farmers to draw blood, Blake said “something in my gut told me it wasn’t the end for him.”

Blake also said her emu “never had any symptoms of AI other than not eating, which is often caused by stress in emu.” It was very fortuitous timing.’

She added that Emmanuel had been “tested for everything under the sun” and had tested negative for diseases such as West Nile virus and chlamydia.

Farmer thanked those who sent “positive thoughts, prayers and good energy,” but also took time to thank those who had less nice things to say.

“Thank you to those of you who didn’t say anything nice, because it made me dig deeper into my faith and fight even harder for Emmanuel.”

“He will make a full recovery and I will be with him every step of the way,” she added.

While it seems that the story will have a happy ending for Emmanuel, the emu’s outlook has not always looked so rosy.

Blake made a desperate plea to the Irvine clan after believing Emmanuel had contracted the flu.

“I have been a supporter of your family for as long as I can remember and now I am reaching out to you in utter desperation,” she tweeted.

“I need help rescuing my emu, Emmanuel. I’ll pay to get someone to us if they can help, no questions asked.’

Bindi Irwin replied: “Thank you so much for reaching out.”

“Even though we are a wildlife hospital that has treated over 100,000 animals, including emus, we have never treated an emu with this particular disease,” she added.

“We will need to rely on our animal expert colleagues who have more experience dealing with this bird flu.”

Bindi continued: “Our hearts go out to you and we appreciate you caring so deeply and showing such compassion for dear Emmanuel.”

The virus that kills up to 50% of people… but is rarely transmitted: everything you need to know about bird flu

What is bird flu?

Bird flu, or bird flu, is an infectious type of flu that spreads among bird species, but can rarely infect humans.

It is an infectious disease of birds caused by a strain of the standard influenza A virus.

Bird flu is unique in that it can be transmitted directly from birds to humans.

There are 15 different strains of the virus. It is the H5N1 strain that infects humans and causes death.

People can catch avian flu directly from close contact with live infected birds, and those who work with infected chickens are at greatest risk.

Like human flu, there are many strains of bird flu:

The current bird outbreak in the US is H5N1.

Where has this been seen in the US?

To date, H5N1 viruses have been found in poultry and backyard birds in 29 US states and in wild birds in 36 states. There is only one documented case of HPV in the United States.

How deadly is the virus?

The human mortality rate from bird flu is estimated at 50 percent.

But because human-to-human transmission of the virus is so rare, since 1997, about 500 bird flu deaths have been reported to the World Health Organization.

Is it transmitted from birds to humans?

Bird-to-human transmission is rare and usually does not spread from person to person.

Bird flu is spread by close contact with an infected bird or its body.

This may include:

  • touching infected birds
  • touching litter or litter
  • killing or preparing an infected bird for cooking

Professor Ian Jones, a virologist at the University of Reading, said: “Transmission of bird flu to humans is rare as it requires direct contact between an infected, usually dead, bird and the individual concerned.

“It is a risk for handlers who are tasked with disposing of corpses after an outbreak, but the virus does not usually spread and poses little threat.

“It’s not like the seasonal flu we’re used to.

“Despite the current heightened concern about viruses, chicken meat and eggs are not at risk and public alarm is unnecessary.”

A recent outbreak

An estimated 38 million domestic birds have died in bird flu outbreaks since early February.

According to the USDA count, 780,000 birds in commercial flocks died or were destroyed in May, compared with 1.49 million birds in February, 20.96 million in March and 14.73 million in April.

But with summer on the horizon, data from the USDA show that the threat of spread will disappear as the weather warms.

The most recent detection of HPAI occurred during the 2014-15 epidemic, one of the worst animal disease outbreaks in US history. This resulted in the deaths of about 43 million laying hens and 7.4 million turkeys.

What are the symptoms?

Symptoms of bird flu usually appear after three to five days, the most common being:

  • very high temperature
  • or feeling hot or shivering
  • muscles ache
  • headache
  • cough or shortness of breath
