ATTACK BY OSTRICH TAKES WOMAN'S LIFE

A 63-year-old South African woman has died in hospital after being attacked by an enraged ostrich, police said Sunday.

A statement said Anna Hendricks and her husband were attacked by the ostrich two weeks ago while crossing a field outside Cape Town.

They were admitted to a hospital, and Mrs Hendricks died of her injuries Friday. Her husband has been discharged.

Male ostriches are territorial and attack intruders by kicking them and raking them with their inch-long claws.
