During training for the Masters of Flight: Birds of Prey show on Friday afternoon, the white-bellied stork flew away. The bird, whose name is Las, was last seen on Saturday morning in the vicinity of Stone Zoo and nearby Spot Pond.
Las stands about 3 feet tall, has a white belly, dark iridescent purple wings, neck and back, a featherless face and long legs. The bird has a wingspan of about 3 feet.
The bird is not dangerous, and could be walking on the ground or perched in a tree. If you see Las, please do not approach as this could cause the bird to fly away. Please call 314-600-4873 and staff will come to get the bird.
