"The cassowary is rightfully considered the most risky bird in the world!" the zoo says.
The victim was breeding cassowaries - large, flightless birds native to Australia and New Guinea - on his property near Gainesville, Florida, when he met his death, authorities said.
The man, named Marvin Hajos, was taken to hospital by paramedics where he died from his injuries.
A 75-year-old man has been killed by a large, flightless creature that is considered to be the "world's most unsafe bird".
"My understanding is that the gentleman was in the vicinity of the bird and at some point fell", he said. It appears the man fell, and the cassowary attacked him after the fall, Taylor said. A second call came from another person at the scene who reported a medical emergency involving a large bird, said Lt. Joshua Crews of the Alachua County Sheriff's Office.
Regarded as the world's most unsafe bird, they stand up to 1.8 metres tall, can weigh up to 60 kilograms, and they have a 10-centimetre, dagger-like claw on each foot. It can run up to 31 miles per hour through dense underbrush, jump nearly 7 feet into the air and is a skilled swimmer, so it can deftly fend off threats, the zoo says.
A spokesman from the sheriff's office said "Initial information indicates that this was a tragic accident for Mr Hajos".
Cassowaries are eaten in parts of New Guinea.
It says: "The cassowary can slice open any predator or potential threat with a single swift kick". Two birds were on the property but it was unclear whether both attacked Hajos, per USA Today.
The birds are not native to the United States and are usually found in Papua New Guinea and Australia and are bred for collection, rather than food.
