Seattle Seahawks' live mascot lands on fan's head during pregame
The Seahawks' live mascot, Taima the Hawk, has been leading the team out of the tunnel during home games since 2007.
Despite Taima's veteran status, he took a break from his usual pregame routine to fly around the stadium and land on the head of a fan.
Taima, which means "thunder," was named by Seahawks fans. The hawk was hatched in 2005, and has an approximate 4.5 foot wingspan.
The story did have a happy ending as Taima was reportedly returned to his handler.
