A golden eagle which escaped from Regent’s Park Zoo is still on the loose after outsmarting his keepers’ latest attempts to recapture him.

a12090_goldie_02

Goldie the Eagle escaped from the central London zoo eight days ago and has been dodging his captors ever since. He has spent most of the past week flying round the park – although he has also been spotted in Tottenham Court Road, Euston and Camden Town.

A crowd of about a thousand gathered in Regents Park today to watch the bird being chased by keepers, police, fire fighters and even a BBC reporter. The Navy has also been consulted about supplying a net and line-firing rifles.

Goldie, who has lived at the zoo for five years, escaped while his cage was being cleaned. He left behind his mate, Regina.

Joe McCorry, deputy head keeper of birds of prey at London Zoo, has predicted Goldie will be caught once he gets hungry.

The zoo has received hundreds of telephone calls and letters offering advice for his capture. Two teams of keepers have been tracking his progress using two way radio sets on loan from the Civil Defence.

The closest Goldie has so far come to being recaptured was yesterday while he was devouring a Muscovy duck in the grounds of the American Ambassador’s residence in Regent’s Park. But he was scared off at the last minute when a reporter tried to throw a coat over him and the bird abandoned his meal half-eaten.

a12090_goldie_01Goldie has also attacked two Cairn terriers but members of the watching crowd managed to beat him off.

BBC reporter John Timpson recently returned from covering the Queen’s trip to Ethiopia tried to charm Goldie back to earth using an Ethiopian bird pipe – perhaps not surprisingly this ploy also failed.

In Context

Goldie the eagle was recaptured, as predicted, once he became hungry.

a12090_goldie_03After 12 days of freedom in the park, the deputy head keeper, Joe McCorry, lured him with a dead rabbit tied to a rope near one of the eagle’s favourite haunts, the wild fowl sanctuary.

An hour and a half later, Goldie swooped down for his last picnic in the park. The keeper quietly walked up and caught him with his bare hands, secured his legs and took him back to the zoo.

He was declared unhurt after his ordeal and returned to his cage with his mate. London Zoo subsequently reported a big increase in visitor numbers, up to 6,500 from 3,700 on the corresponding Sunday the previous year.

Goldie made a second bid for freedom in December 1965 – but was recaptured after four days.

John Timpson, who was best known as a presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, died in November 2005 at the age of 77.

headingAh,sweet Narcissus, dark flower of loveliness, why is it the Freudians use you as such an altogether disagreeable symptom of vanity? We wouldn’t know, but when a girl like Bobbi takes it into her head to admire the curves we’ve been admiring all along – and then lets us photograph her in the process then the Narcissus becomes a rose by another name.

headingMarilyn Stevens has put a new twist to her dancing career by reversing the procedure of booking. Most strippers from south of the border aim for a series of engagements in the United States and very few of the American strippers ever book into Mexican clubs. The main reason for this is that the pay is seldom as much as in this country’s night clubs, but Marilyn has appealed so well to the Mexican patrons that she is now one of the highest paid dancers in Mexico.

headingThe charmer in the fancy hose is Laura Melton, who works for a transit company in Chicago, as a "coin checker". When the drivers turn in the day’s receipts, along with their own tally slip, Laura verifies the count. She then puts the various denomination coins into paper rolls and bundles the paper money. It isn’t quite as hard as it sounds, for the coins are sorted automatically by a machine, then rolled.

Fine roadability and more power make the Renault Dauphine a hot car.

For some time it has been known that Renault, France’s vigorously conducted national car factory, was working on a new car to come between the miniature 45-cubic-inch 4 CV and the 2.2-litre Fregate. I knew the time for production was drawing near and one day I had a tip that if I was in Paris at a certain time, and ready to take plane for an undisclosed destination, I “might see something interesting.”

Frills, Freckles & Flesh

When Fran Ormand first aspired to a career as a professional model, some friends gloomily predicted her freckles would either eliminate her completely from consideration, or else limit her severely. The many appearances of Fran’s lovely features in commercial ads is proof of just how wrong everyone was. Those very freckles help impart to Fran that wholesome "country girl" look required to model many items in the clothing and cosmetics line. Coincidentally, Fran is a farm girl from Pennsylvania who made good in the big city after winning a local beauty contest as a student.

01631_trident_01The Peel Trident was the second three-wheeled microcar made by the Peel Engineering Company on the Isle of Man. It was manufactured in 1965 and 1966. The Trident featured a clear bubble top and either two seats or one seat with a detachable shopping basket. It has been described as "a terrestrial flying saucer”. Like its predecessor it was marketed as a "shopping car" or a "Saloon Scooter".

Specifications

01631_trident_03The car is 72 in (1,829 mm) long and 42 in (1,067 mm) wide, with a weight of 198 lb (90 kg). Like the P50, it uses a 49 cc (3.0 cu in) DKW engine, and a top speed at 38 mph. It was advertised that the Trident got 100 miles per imperial gallon (2.8 L/100 km; 83 mpg-US), "almost cheaper than walking". The original retail price was £190.

All engines supplied to Peel from Zweirad Union (for both the P50 and Trident) were of the 49 cc 3 speed 4.2PS 804-1600 type. Uniquely, however, the Peel engines had the 9th digit as a 4, thus being of the form 80416004.  This car is the one of the smallest in the world.

Media appearances

01631_trident_02The Trident made a late transatlantic media appearance in the American television series Monster Garage, when a team of engineers and fabricators attempted to fit a high-performance Hayabusa superbike engine into the bodywork of a Trident, mounted onto a conventional go-kart frame. The project was a failure, and the unfinished car was destroyed by the show’s host Jesse James with a single shot from a .50 caliber sniper rifle.  This car was actually a replica built by Andy Carter in Nottingham, UK.

It also made a brief appearance in the BBC motoring programme Top Gear on BBC Two, where co-presenter James May described the Peel Trident as "something out of The Jetsons". Other co-presenter, Jeremy Clarkson, described the Peel Trident, along with its sister the Peel P50 as his perfect two car garage. The Trident appeared on the BBC business programme Dragons’ Den in August 2010.
