They're not usually found in the U.S., but they are sought out by exotic animal lovers and do require a permit to own.
The owner was a breeder of the rare bird that is native to Australia and New Guinea, Alachua County Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Taylor said.
"My understanding is that the gentleman was in the vicinity of the bird and at some point fell".
Wildlife officials did not answer phone calls from The Associated Press and it could not be learned what happened to the bird. It appears the man fell, and the cassowary attacked him after the fall, Taylor said.
He was taken to hospital where he later died.
On Saturday, the Sheriff's Office identified the man as Marvin Hajos, 75.
"Initial information indicates that this was a tragic accident for Mr Hajos", sheriff's office spokesman Lieutenant Brett Rhodenizer said.
