There are actual comments from the handler under the video too - I guess he cracked four ribs on one of the attempts to retrieve the condor, so hopefully he recovers quickly.

Still, it was pretty funny to watch as the bird basically does its best "I'm out!" and heads straight for the locker room.

This wasn't fucking funny at all, that bird has no business there. The idiots laughing about it are what I think is wrong with humanity. As the top species we're supposed to be better than that. As Michigan fans we're definitely supposed to be better than this video. That bird could have easily been killed and for what?

When the guy carrying it falls and allegedly breaks his ribs he could have easily crushed the bird. Slipping on the ice it could have broken something which usually animals don't come back from like us. Hardly overreacting. That animal never should have been in that position.

I was sitting in the first row at a bird show at Parrot Jungle Island in Miami when an Andean Condor flew down to the stage and hit me in the head. Knocked my hat right off. Rough way to become part of the show.
