On Sunday, October 3, a National Aviary team spotted Kody at a residence in Pine Township following reports of the bird loitering nearby. Using “professional falconry techniques and equipment,” the team was “able to safely retrieve Kody and bring him back home,” according to a National Aviary tweet. Apparently this entails a large net and running towards the eagle as quickly as possible.

Pretty funny to watch the guy chasing the bird.  Good think the bird wasn’t hurt or anyone else.

I’m not so sure if I would want to be that close to one big bird.  Especially if it was mad!
