Bald eagle lands on football fans during Cotton Bowl

ARLINGTON, Texas —Fans attending the Cotton Bowl were surprised by a bald eagle that flew around the stadium during the national anthem.

Clark, the bald eagle, was supposed to fly around the stadium and return to land on the field.

However, he became confused and landed on the back of a Notre Dame fan before taking off and landing on a man who held his arm out.

The eagle remained perched on the fan’s arm until his trainer picked him up.
