Chuck the Chukar felt a man's hand reach into the crate to take a hold of him. Out of the dark he came and then into the open air - and above him he saw the sun! Chuck was placed gently down on the grass and there was no chicken wire and there were no cages. Chuck was outside the coop for the first time.
Just then, Brad Evans, wielding a 16 gauge shotgun, started running towards Chuck.
"Maybe Brad just wants to play," Chuck thought to himself.
But it was clear that Brad didn't just want to play. Brad was chasing Chuck around the field, getting closer and closer. Chuck tried to run but Brad was just too fast for him. There was only one thing to do. A storm cloud passed overhead. Chuck mustered all of his strength and he flapped his wings and he took off - soaring upwards towards the trees - in beautiful free flight for the first time in his entire life.
