The owner told veterinary services that he purchased the female ostrich at an open-air market in Kfar Kassem. Since he bought it, he has been raising it in his home, though he failed to notify municipal officials as is required by law.

The Jerusalem municipality said that it had arranged for the ostrich to be repatriated in the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, where it will be under the watchful eye of the professional veterinary staff.
