Escaped Steller's Sea Eagle Captured in Neighborhood
Occurred on October 3, 2021 / Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA
Info from Licensor: "Kodiak, a Steller’s sea eagle, escaped from the Pittsburgh Aviary on Sept. 25 through an opening in his enclosure. On Oct. 3, it was reported he was seen in the woods in my neighborhood. A team of three gentlemen from the aviary were walking the neighborhood looking for him, and one asked if he could go in our backyard to try to spot Kodiak in the trees. I said yes, then shortly after got in my car to head to the store. I made it 4 houses down and saw Kodiak just standing there in someone's driveway! I stopped, called my husband and he alerted the employee that was in our yard that Kodiak was just a few houses down. All three employees surrounded Kodiak, and after saying his name a few times to try to get him to come to them, the employee in the blue shirt makes a quick move to capture Kodiak in the net just before he is about to take off."
