Bald eagle flies away from California museum where it lived for 27 years

Officials at a Northern California zoo say a bald eagle flew away from her coop earlier this week and are asking for anyone who may spot her to report the sighting.

Palo Alto Junior Museum and Zoo director John Aikin tells KTVU the eagle has lived at the museum for 27 years and has taken off in the past but would always come back.

Aikin says the bird, named Sequoia, vanished Monday after she saw something that she started to chase.

Aikin says Sequoia was originally found shot in the wild, and has a paralyzed tail and even though she can fly, she cannot move well enough to catch prey.

Museum officials say Sequoia wears a tracking device and that the last time they saw her signal, she was near Stanford University on Tuesday afternoon.
