Auburn Eagles are Now Tracked


By Alabama News Network

If you've ever been to an Auburn game, you've probably seen the two eagles that fly above Jordan-Hare stadium on gamedays.

Have you ever thought about what would happen if one of the birds got lost?

Auburn University is taking a proactive step to fix that problem. Bird handlers are now using a special pet tracking device called Tagg.

It's a GPS system, which lets pet owners use their cell phones to find their lost pets.

The devices would bring bird handlers within 10-feet of a lost bird if one flew out of the stadium.

The company that makes the devices donated them to the Southeastern Raptor Rehabilitation Center, which handles the Auburn eagles.
