Earning their stripes
The now-infamous Oxford zebra incident will live long in memory — and on the backs of the Oxford community — with special commemorative T-shirts sold by students Adnan Rashid and Katie Larson. The black shirts feature a zebra printed in white on the front and on the back is emblazoned “I was there when the zebra took over Seney Hall.”
Profits from the sale raised $2,150, which was presented to Oxford Dean Stephen Bowen in May. Bowen praised the students’ creative initiative and said that the sum would cover most of the costs. Damages had included some broken furniture, repairs to the elevator, a half-eaten course catalogue and the biological consequences of large animal confinement.
For the record, no one has been caught and Barcode the zebra is doing well.
