Los Gatos, CA—During an employee offsite today, Wild Dingo CEO, Margaret J. Starling, spontaneously made a bid to provide herding services to a local chicken farmer. Upon passing the neighbor chicken home, Starling immediately noticed chickens casually strolling—uncontained—away from the hen house. Being a leader of few words, she quickly went to work, demonstrating her skills in herding chickens. “Free ranging chickens endanger themselves and encourage undesirable visitors. I simply saw an opportunity to demonstrate my excellent services in guiding them to a safe area and hoped it would lead to an amicable business relationship," said Starling.*
Less than pleased with the surprise demonstration, chicken leader, Chelsea Chicken remarked, “While we appreciate Starling's concern for our safety, I cannot help but believe that her intentions are less than 'amicable.' I've been around the hen house long enough to know that Starling is a loose cannon and cannot be trusted. Therefore, we are turning down her bid for chicken-herding services.”
Disappointed in the loss, Maggie Starling consoled herself with a chicken stew dinner.
