Fat kookaburra Mama Cass learns to fly again after diet

It took a five-week exercise regime at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo for the bird to lose almost a quarter of her body mass after her love of sausages (which developed after residents at a Sydney park started feeding her them at barbecues) saw her weight soar.

Mama Cass - named after the overweight singer from 60s pop group The Mamas & the Papas - successfully lost 100g through diet and exercise through the specially-designed avian fat camp regime.

Her last weigh-in saw her tipping the scales at 447g, within the normal limit for adult kookaburras. She has now been released back into the wild.
