Tara the 'Hero Cat' dropped the puck for the Bakersfield Condors game

Live condor mascot will also be at the game

BAKERSFIELD - The cat famous for saving a 4-year-old boy from a dog attack and another viral video star hit the ice Friday.

Tara, the "Hero Cat," and the Triantafilo family dropped the puck at the Bakersfield Condors game Friday. The game begins at 7 p.m.

Tara the Hero Cat's first pitch fail at the Bakersfield Blaze game Tuesday drew international media.

Jeremy Triantafilo was saved from serious injury when Tara jumped between him and an attacking Labrador/chow mix.

Queen Victoria the live condor will be at the Friday, Saturday and Sunday games. Vicki is another animal who reached viral video fame. During Queen Victoria's appearance in 2013 , an animal handler repeatedly slipped and fell on the ice, dropping the bird. The condor then escaped and ran around the arena.
