A bald eagle is okay after being videotaped flying into a window at Oral Roberts University on Wednesday.

A spokesman for the university said the bald eagle and a golden eagle were brought to the university from the World Bird Sanctuary in Valley Park, Missouri.

The eagles were brought to an event for Spirit Day on campus and the bald eagle was trained to fly from the trainer to the balcony and back, but the eagle flew into a window instead, shocking the students at the event.

Trainers said Louis, the bald eagle, was fine and posed for photos after the event. Because of the commotion the golden eagle never flew.

Anything connected to the (fortunately) late, Oral Roberts is an abomination to the universe.

Need to demolish the whole campus. Especially if it's a danger to wildlife.
