(WMC-TV) - One bird is safely returned to a Mid-South Zoo after trying to fly away. 

According to a Communication Specialist at the Memphis Zoo, "a white stork decided to fly away Saturday. The bird's wings are (trimmed) to keep them from flying away. The bird obviously knew it was due for a trim."

The stork was safely caught and recovered with the help of a few people from Rhodes College.

The fowl is now in good condition and safe at the Memphis Zoo.
