Bald eagle lands on fans arm during a game!

This is amazing, but FYI it wasn’t a random wild eagle; it was a trained bird being flown in the stadium. It was used to people.


Image
O_oblivious

Because a wild eagle would have absolutely shredded his arm.


Image
inkyrail

But not used to people enough to go where it was trained to.


Image
c-two-the-d

"It was used to people." I wish folks would actually people more!

What are his thoughts about being eagle perch?

Are you giving your uncle a titty twister in this photo?

How’s his arm?

Tell your uncle the internet thinks he's very cool :)

Your uncle is now President.

What was he thinking at the moment of the photograph?


Image

Please inform your uncle that he is a right bad-ass!

You’re uncle is a true American. Blessed be upon him thy eagle layeth on his arm.

Any advice to those of us training for a similar fate? I’ve brought a pocketful of field mice to games for years but no luck yet

Why does this guy look like he knew exactly what to do with a bald eagle on him? I'm impressed


Image
RIsurfer

Because he's the chosen one


Image
Sephiroso

Because he's Navajo and he's in tune with nature. His name? Bird's Landing-Perch.


Image
NoCountryForBaldMen

Because it’s a stunt.


Image
highbme

Isn't he just trying to keep it away from his face?


Image
LordMagnos

I like to think he was like "Ok this isn't even a once in a life time chance. This is like, once in a generation. Play it cool. You MEANT for this to happen."

Because he knew exactly what to do!


Image
soundwaveprime

He must be a falconer. His hand is closed with a little hole in it which is to hold a peace of meat in it and let the bird peck it out which is important to the training of the bird.


Image
[deleted]

yeah when you are holding a raptor like that you have to raise your arm so it want to climb up your arm and not down your arm towards your neck and shoulder. Also that must fucking hurt like hell without a glove


Image

Never look it in the eye?

The kid to the right is clapping out of fear of what would happen if he did not.


Image

That's a healthy distrust of birds and I one fully agree with.

Found the comment I was looking for. Bloody hell, life isn't supposed to be experienced through a lens.

I can relate. I'm in a part of the Midwest that never had Bald Eagles when I was growing up. However, now they are more abound. I went outside one morning and two of them were perched in a tree not far from my house. THEY ARE F*CKING HUGE.


Image
ArthurDied

I hope it didn't claw his arm apart. Usually handlers have those thick arm guards, those talons are massive and wicked sharp.


Image
mkul316

Wicked shap.


Image

Eagles are serious business. A little joke amongst falconers.


Image
Br35-Ba56

I have an african grey and he once bit my index finger after i gave him a grape. I still have the marks on my finger, it was 6 months ago. I really don’t want to know what a bald eagle would do to your fingers


Image
Impressive-Baker2549

Look at his eyes. I think he might be in a little bit of pain.


Image
MobiusTrip

I'm guessing he probably has a massive thick arm guard under his sleeve.


Image
BierKippeMett

Do you think those talons are sharper than those of chickens?


Image
theonecalledjinx

Do chickens have large Talons?

Yep and insanely strong. Way more than you think.

I just can't help imagining what Trumps face would have looked like if that eagle had landed on his arm.

SShinnji

Tuyen Nguyen, who has spent most of his adult life working as a carpenter on Notre Dame's campus, starred in a pre-kickoff viral moment on Saturday, when a bald eagle circling the stadium during the national anthem decided to land with Nguyen instead of its handlers. … "Oh, by the way, I'm a big-time Philadelphia Eagles fan," Nguyen said. "And the eagle landed on me at the Cowboys' stadium. How's that?"

He is the chosen one. He will bring freedom to the Force.

He looks low key terrified of the bird. Which is fair, it’s an apex predator.

Trying not to get pooped on, wish had longer arms now, that bird must be fricking heavy


Image
DudeWithAnAxeToGrind

I spoke with an eagle handler. They are huge, but not as heavy as they look, between 6 and 14 pounds, with females being larger/heavier. This one looks to be on the smaller side.


Image

Fukin 'Murica!

Wow the level of chill you would need to have not to freak out and startle the eagle. Nice one.

Legally that man is now president.

That's one pretty Freedom Chicken.

It’s a trained eagle so eh nothing to worry about beyond like the guy holding it having claw marks or something.

Then you find out that his name is, "Runs with Eagle"

If only the Egales has that kind of support this past weekend

I think it's a trained bird that was there as a side show, and I think this has happened before at other games...or my matrix is glitching again

Coincidence the eagle finds the Indian..??

Image

So, isn't this person now the President?


Image
bmeireles85

I think they have a different way to do it there. Political parades are a thing and a lot of money needs be wasted on it first. Then people think they have something to say about it by voting but nah...not really.

That there eagle is an ancestor and knows that man


Image

the bald man is so proud


Image
BrainWav

Moments after this picture was taken, the man was cloaked in red, white, and blue light and emerged with a massive star-spangled top hat and suit, with an apple pie in one hand, a copy of the Constitution in the other, and an AR-15 slung over his shoulder. He then flew off to fight the Commies on eagle's wings.


Image

Well, he's native American so.

Man seeing all those people trying to take pictures hurts my brain. Used to do that all the time until unrealized how many great life moments I was ruining by taking pictures of them instead of actually experiencing them.

Don't try this. I spoke with an eagle handler a while ago. Eagles are no joke, even the ones kept in captivity and used to people.
