What We are Selling:
Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine's Southeastern Raptor Center is auctioning the custom lure and jesses used in the pre-game eagle flight when Auburn meets Alabama in the 2013 Iron Bowl.
How the Item is Used:
Uniquely crafted by volunteers, items are used one time – during the Auburn eagle’s pre-game stadium flight. Now is your chance to own a piece of this unique Auburn tradition! Jesses are cuffs worn around the eagle’s ankles with straps to assist the handler to securely hold the eagle. The lure is used by the handler to entice the eagle to land midfield and often has talon marks from being used.
Where Does My Money Go?
Proceeds from the auction will benefit Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine's Southeastern Raptor Center, a non-profit organization with a three-fold mission of wildlife rehabilitation, education and conservation.
Since its modest beginning in the mid-1970s, the Southeastern Raptor Center has treated and released thousands of birds of prey. The center conducts more than 350 educational programs for thousands of school children and civic groups annually.
You can also support the center by participating in the Adopt-a-Raptor program, which helps defray the costs of housing, food, and medical care for injured and orphaned birds of prey. Visit www.vetmed.auburn.edu/raptor for details.
