【看CP學英文】面對新冠肺炎大流行,許多國家面臨第二波疫情而再度鎖國,馬尼拉因疫情加劇,週二開始實施長達兩週的封城措施,雖然快被悶壞了,大部份民眾還是乖乖待在家。但鴕鳥可沒這麼聽話,封城實施首日就有兩隻鴕鳥衝破封鎖線上街狂奔,全面失控。

In the face of the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, many countries are once again going into lockdown, with Manila under a two-week city lockdown starting on Tuesday.

Many people accepted to stay home, but some ostriches were not so obedient, as they broke through the fences and ran out of control on the first day of the closure.

根據南華早報,近日,臉書、推特上瘋傳兩隻鴕鳥在奎松市街上橫衝直撞的影片。據報導,附近目擊居民表示,他外出買食物,看到一隻鴕鳥在路上奔跑,立刻拍攝影片上傳臉書,沒想到影片引起網友熱烈迴響。

On the first morning of Metro Manila’s strict coronavirus restrictions on Tuesday, two ostriches were seen on the loose in a subdivision in Quezon City.

According to a local news outlet, a resident of Mapayapa Village 3, said he was buying food when he saw an ostrich running down the street. He shot a video of the large bird running after a car and posted it to Facebook.

另一位目擊居民馬克(Mark Lawrence Molina Umipig)也錄下影片,只見一隻鴕鳥奔向柵欄門,當牠看到警衛放下屏障並吆喝道「沒有ID就不能離開」,隨後旋即急煞。

Another resident, Mark Lawrence Molina Umipig, recorded the ostrich running towards a subdivision gate. It stopped when a security guard lowered the barrier and called out in Tagalog, “You don’t have an ID, you can’t leave.”

鴕鳥停住後轉身就跑,跑了幾公尺後又回頭,緩緩朝著大門靠近。警衛這次用更堅定語氣警告失控鴕鳥。

「我說,你沒有大門通行證不能離開。」

The ostrich turned around and ran a few meters before stopping and walking back to the gate. The guard told it firmly, “I said, you don’t have a gate pass, you can’t leave”.

於是,鴕鳥彷彿聽得懂人話,識相地轉身離去。

 It then turned around again and ran away.

網友看到影片紛紛留言,「連鴕鳥都出門求救了」、「連鴕鳥都想逃離這個國家。」

By then, the first video had been shared widely on Facebook and Twitter, with comments like “even ostriches are out looking for help” and “even an ostrich wants to escape from this country”.

另一則影片是網友從車內拍攝,畫面中只見一群男子正在制服一隻鴕鳥,然而,當鏡頭往旁邊一轉,只見另一隻鴕鳥在街上狂奔,頓時嚇壞拍攝者。

Another video, shot from inside a car, showed a group of men subduing the ostrich. The person shooting the scene then swept the camera around and was startled to see another ostrich running down the street.

當地警方表示,兩隻失控鴕鳥在附近街區亂竄,後來保全已順利將牠們制服。

A village association officer, who asked not to be identified, said the two ostriches had run around the neighborhood until they were caught by security guards.

據報導,這些鴕鳥的主人外出離城,牠們被關在一塊被柵欄圍起的空地,但不知為何竟成功逃脫出來。

According to the source, the giant birds were housed in a fenced lot and got out accidentally. The owner of the lot is currently out of town.
