Fat bird gets a personal trainer

SYDNEY (Reuters) – An Australian kookaburra bird is undergoing personal training after growing too fat to fly because she ate too many sausages.

The kookaburra got into trouble with her weight when residents at a Sydney park began feeding her sausages at barbecues.

The porky kookaburra weighed in at 565 grams (1.2 pounds), nearly 40 percent heavier than a normal adult bird, rendering her so unfit she couldn’t fly.
A Sydney resident brought the bird to the zoo after spotting dogs chasing her along the ground.

Following a rigorous exercise regime up to three times a day with a personal trainer, the kookaburra is winning her battle of the bulge, but still not 100% ready to fly. I wonder how much money is being spent on the trainer? Maybe they should put the bird on the “Insanity” workout?
