Goldie the Golden Eagle escaped ZSL London Zoo in 1965, and for 11 days and 19½ he flew from tree to tree in Regent’s Park. He appeared on television, in the press and people cheered wildly when he was mentioned in the House of Commons. Five thousand people caused traffic jams around Regent’s Park in an attempt to see Goldie. He was finally recaptured and returned to the Zoo.
