There are three types of species of this bird. One species is known as the southern cassowary. Two other species are the northern cassowary and the dwarf cassowary. The northern cassowary is said to be a very dangerous bird.
Kasowari generally lives by eating fruits. But they eat all kinds of plants and leaves. Generally this bird is considered quite calm and stays away from humans. But if it is disturbed then it becomes extremely dangerous. It can even injure you badly.
Kasowari has also been given the status of the most dangerous bird in the world. Its claws are very strong and sharp. They can jump up to two meters in the air. Its weight is around 60 kg. These birds can run very fast. Their speed can be up to 50 kilometers per hour.
The two Kasowari caught by the BSF are birds of the Dwarf Kasowari species. Smugglers were trying to bring it to India from Bangladesh border. But then the eyes of the BSF fell on the smugglers and they ran away leaving the box of these two birds.
