Street Interviews: Thoughts on the Huskie statue, Oorah

DeKALB –  The Huskies on Parade statues sprinkled across DeKalb have served as a source of unity and remembrance since they were installed in memorial of the Feb. 14 shooting at NIU. 

The theft of one such colorful Huskie, however, is a shock and a heartbreak. Oorah, a Huskie statue who stood for 15 years outside the local Doherty Law Firm, was stolen last November. 

Many NIU students are upset to hear of the statue’s dog-napping, yet eager for the arrival of its replacement. Welcome home to the spirit of Oorah!
