INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (January 3, 2015) — Tons of fans will attend the Colts playoff game at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday against the Bengals.

A special attendee who made an appearance at last year’s playoff game against the Chiefs will be in attendance again this year.

Challenger, the bald eagle, is named in honor of the Space Shuttle crew, will make the appearance to raise awareness about saving America’s eagles, which are a protected species.

Challenger was rescued at a young age and was “human socialized” so he cannot be released back into the wild.

A non-profit group from Tennessee cares for him.
