Animal Fact No. 57

The main threats to the wild cassowaries of Australia include habitat destruction, run-ins with traffic and domestic dogs. Feral pigs also compete for food and destroy the cassowary's nests and eggs. Last but not least, when people feed wild cassowaries they can become dangerous, expecting to be fed by any person who comes by.
