Heather Bolint ’14 (New England, MS Env. Studies) made national news in Oct. 2017 when she came across a Polish crested rooster while hiking the Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia, and carried the rooster more than 40 miles to safety. The story of Heather rescuing the rather exotic-looking farm animal and hiking with him through three states went viral. She brought the rooster to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy headquarters in West Virginia, and then delivered him to an animal sanctuary.
