You have heard the weird stories from time to time of LIVE ANIMALS showing up at indoor sporting events with sometimes catastrophic results.
I am not here to tell you about the catastrophic results. I’m here to tell you about the funny ones.
Like a couple days ago when some random CAT ended up in the middle of an Israeli basketball league game. The funny part? The team mascot was a DOG.
Check out the video of the Dog chasing the Cat:
Oh there’s more! How about Auburn University’s “War Eagle” that flies around during football games (I know this one is outdoors, but still). The War Eagle is no exception to the rule that birds will try to fly through glass windows:
Another CRAZY instance of wildlife showing up at sporting events was in 2009 at an NBA game between San Antonio and Sacramento. A real-life BAT was flying around inside the AT&T Center, causing a delay in the game. The bat actually flew right by Spurs’ guard Manu Ginobili, and in a quick reaction, he SWATTED the bat right out of mid-air!
There have been a lot of encounters with wildlife at sporting events. Check out these these five clips in this video that show different sports dealing with wildlife, including seagulls, a guinea pig, a snake, and some ducks/geese.
You hate for some of those moments to happen to you, but gosh darn it, they are sure funny later!
