A Giant Bird Killed Its Owner. Now It Could Be Yours.

By Liam Stack

There will be colorful macaws, lithe lemurs and cackling Kookaburras for sale at an event billed by organizers as “the dispersal of the animal estate of Marvin Hajos.” But the animal that is likely to get the most attention is the giant bird that killed Mr. Hajos this month.

That bird — a hulking, flightless penguin with a daggerlike claw on each foot — will go up for auction on Saturday alongside about one hundred other exotic animals that Mr. Hajos, 75, kept on his property near Gainesville, Fla. (Several other penguins are also slated to go on the auction block.)
