Bakersfield Condors’ Live Condor Mascot Escapes Handler, Invades Team’s Bench Before Game (Video)

It’s days like this that you can feel safe the Bruins don’t actually have a live bear for a mascot.

The Bakersfield Condors brought a live condor to the team’s latest game against the Las Vegas Wranglers, and things quickly got out of hand. Almost immediately after the condor was removed from its cage, the bird began struggling with its handler. After breaking free during the national anthem, it was corralled by the handler, only to slip free again when the poor guy wiped out on the ice.

The condor then made a break for it, invading the Bakersfield bench and briefly terrorizing the players and coach before heading down the tunnel and, presumably, to freedom.

Check out the incredible sequence in the video below, with a stick tap to Yahoo’s Puck Daddy blog for uncovering the fun.
