Prove Yourself

Sitting in the cab of his truck with the motor running, Toby rubbed the loose skin over his tense shoulder muscles and watched some birds flutter past. Ten years, a lot of liquor and two broken hearts ago it was no sweat for him to kill three or four birds with one stone. Lately, he was lucky to get one or two.

The manager at the zoo, apparently scarred for life by the carnage in the displays, said his lifetime ban was still in effect.... but there were other towns and other zoos.
