Two emus have been banned entering a hotel in Australia's Outback. The emu is the world's second-largest living bird height and is native to Australia. The two banned emus are siblings (brother and sister). The four-room Yaraka Hotel the state of Queensland barred the giant birds because bad behaviour. The birds are called Kevin and Carol. They were well known the hotel popping in for a few biscuits or a slice of toast. However, recently, the two birds have become a nuisance to the guests staying the hotel. Co-owner Chris Gimblett has put rope across the stairs leading to the hotel to keep the birds . There is also a sign for guests saying: "Please let yourself the emu barrier."

One the reasons the emu ban is that the birds have learned to climb the stairs. They have been wandering to the hotel's bedrooms and shocking guests the corridor. Mr Gimblett said: "Travellers have to be very cautious the emus because they will poke their heads ...and drink all the coffee...and steal your toast. And if you have a barbecue, watch because they'll take everything." He added: "You don't want to get between an emu and its food. They've got very sharp beaks and they're a bit a vacuum cleaner where food is concerned." He warned: "Because they do eat so much food, their toiletry habits are very frequent.... imagine a sloppy bowl porridge from a height a metre."
