The tiny Yaraka Hotel has just four rooms as well as campgrounds and a pub. In an amusing story that has become a viral hit on social media, an Australian pub has banned two local emus from entering the establishment - citing their "bad behaviour".

She told the Guardian Australia: "They've been stealing things from the guests, especially their food".

"They've got very sharp beaks and they're a bit like a vacuum cleaner where food is concerned, so we were anxious about them going into the dining room and causing havoc", he describes.

"Please let yourself in through the emu barrier then reconnect please!"

"Travelers have to be very cautious with the emus, because they will poke their heads in a caravan door and drink all the coffee without spilling the mug and steal your toast, and if you have a barbecue watch out because they'll take everything", he states. Originally part of a group of nine emus whose eggs were hatched in the town, Kevin and Carol are the only two who haven't wandered away from the area or died. "They're enormous, very large and very smelly, and they created great stains".

It would provide another round of $1,200 direct payments based on the same formula from the earlier aid bill. The virus toll continued to mount in the USA , with 4.4 million confirmed cases and deaths passing 150,000.

The emus have been popular with website visitors - they have uncovered that posing for a picture frequently signifies a reward of a quick snack, claims Gimblett, who owns the resort with her husband, Chris.

The Gimbletts said they installed a rope barrier outside the pub and a sign asks customers to do not forget to close the rope after entering to prevent the flightless birds from following, ABC News reports. The animals made quite a few cameos in that segment, lunging in front of the digital camera to seize items of bread.

Now, Gimblett said, she's hoping the birds won't figure out how to maneuver, limbo-style, under the rope and up the stairs.

Crowding isn't commonly a challenge in the pub.

Even with the opportunity of foul habits, Yaraka's emus are generating fascination on the net from persons who say they want to stop by the Outback town. Just after all, Yaraka has a inhabitants of less than 20 persons.

"They are a tad incontinent", Byrne agrees. Many also said they're thankful for a bit of avian comic relief. "The ABC journalist could not halt laughing, and nor could I".
