After Hurricane Gustav blew through Louisiana, this handsome rooster showed up at the office of an oil service company. He was very friendly and plucky, even climbing the steps to sit on the porch of the office building to chew the fat with the guys working their seven day shift. The men inquired but no one claimed the rooster, so he’s now a regular on the premises. One day, one of the crewman decided to tidy up around the place with a little lawn mowing and weed eating. Gus went berserk when he saw the weed eater and attacked it beak and claw! The blood went flying everywhere before the worker could pull the offensive instrument out of harm’s way. Thankfully, Gus mended just fine, with a few battle scars as souvenirs of his skirmish and newfound pride in that he had taken on the enemy and protected the home turf with grit and gutsiness. Gus, named after a hurricane, sometimes has a stormy temperament but he can mellow down and be good company with folks, too. Gus, you’re the best!
