Emu and Ostrich farming used to be a thing up here until about 15 yrs ago or so. Back in working days, I used to handle insurance claims under a program my employer sold for Emu & Ostrich farms. I was told by more than one of the ostrich farmers that McDonalds was considering using ostrich meat (yes, a "McOstrich burger") at one time but obviously that never went thru. Bison meat is/was readily available here and yes its very lean and tasty. I've had alligator nuggets while in Florida and yep, they are good.
