Ostriches Freak Out Over Weasel Ball (Updated)

[Thanks to Bert]

This is totally hil.

update: this video keeps being taken down. A pity. 

(Vid was taken down. We try again:)

(I had to ask how the toy works. It has a small motor with wheels in the ball, which makes it run randomly.) 

The look of it reminded me: when my niece was just six or so, I gave her a present in the form of one of those little fuzzy slinky animals with a thin "invisible" string, so you can make it seem to run over your hands and such. She was happily dragging it around the house, making it crawl over the carpet, and to make sure we were all fooled, she kept saying: “Look! I’m not even pulling the string!”

I have now replaced it with another YT upload of the same vid. Let's see how long that lasts.
