BAKERSFIELD, Calif., Feb. 11 (UPI) -- Video of a California minor league hockey team's mascot, a condor, attempting to escape during the national anthem has become a hit online.

The video depicts the Bakersfield Condors' condor escaping from her handler at Rabobank Arena during the national anthem prior to Friday night's game, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.

The condor, whose hijinks have been viewed more than 330,000 times on YouTube, slid across the ice and was grabbed by the handler, but got free again when her handler slipped and fell.

The bird flapped onto a railing and made her way to the arena's locker rooms before being recaptured.

The team's Twitter account said the bird was unharmed.

"It was great! She's OK!" the post said.
