The male eagle was supposed to fly from the top of the stadium down to its handler Monday as part of the pregame festivities for Independence Day.Fortunately, the freedom loving eagle did not go far. In fact, it appears he just decided to go on a little joyride. Per a tweet from the LA Zoo:
Instead, the liberty-loving bird flew right on past its handler on the outfield grass and continued over the center-field fence.
It disappeared from view, prompting rumbles of laughter and concern from baseball fans.
