For some reason, bald eagles are part of the chapel service at Oral Roberts University to launch the new school year, and an eagle that was released last week flew into a window and fell to the ground as onlookers shrieked and chanted "U.S.A.".
“It was a bit shocking to see, but we’re thankful the eagle is OK,” said ORU spokeswoman Carissa Bratschun.
She said the eagle was supposed to fly straight to the trainer who was standing on stage. Instead, it circled the auditorium.
“It had practiced five or six times,” she said. “When the time came, we’re not sure what happened. It flew around the room and then hit a window.”
