In February 1965 Goldie the Golden Eagle who was taken captive in London Zoo escaped and took to a London life, preferring the freedom of Regents Park, the park within which the zoo is located. During his twelve days of freedom he tried to hunt a white Terrier, but was shoed away by the umbrella of the terrier’s owner, a lady.
In December 1965, Goldie the Golden Eagle, made a successful second bid for freedom. His stint lasted four days. It was his last successful attempt.
