The Florida owner of a giant and rare flightless bird called a cassowary was killed by one of his own earlier this month, and now the bird is up for auction this upcoming weekend, reports Insider.

Marvin Hajos, 75, was attacked by the bird, which can weigh over 160 pounds, grow over 5-feet tall and can have talons up to four inches in length, when he fell on the ground nearby the bird at his estate on April 12.

Officials said Hajos was transported to a nearby hospital, where he died from his injuries. The cassowary was kept on the property as an investigation was conducted. It has since reported that his death was an "accident."

According to a Facebook post from the Gulf Coast Livestock Auction, "One of Marvin’s wishes were his animals be sold at auction as soon as possible. This is an absolute auction and complete dispersal of his animal collection."

Hajos had about 100 exotic animals that he owned at the time of his death.
