a friend to the animals

Doug performed a good deed the other day. He had just finished lunch with some folks on the fourth floor of the dental building, and was walking out of a classroom into a hallway. Suddenly a bird SWOOSHED (yes, swooshed!) past his head, and then got stuck at the end of the hall near a window. It kept ramming into the window trying to escape. Doug and friends tried to redirect it towards the stairwell and the doors, but to no avail.

So what did Doug Shafer, Bird Hero, do? He caught it in his lunch bag and released it outdoors. He said one of the best parts was a woman who got to watch him set down his lunch bag outside and then see a bird come flying out. Now that’s a fancy trick.

As a reward, this good citizen gets to take his last final this morning. He’ll then be free as a bird (get it??) until January. One semester down, only seven to go.
