An emu hand-cuffed by police after running into highway traffic in Victoria has died.

A police officer cuffed the startled bird's legs after it was tackled as it tried to run into traffic on the Princes Highway, Newborough, on Saturday night, police say.

Despite a vet being on scene, police say the bird died "due to what it believed to be a stress from the incident".
