‘Dog’ is a weird cat

New York Post - - NEWS - Su­san Edel­man

A vol­un­teer who worked in the stu­dent store at a Brook­lyn high school had a dog­gone odd way of act­ing with stu­dents: He barked.

Stu­dents who bought candy or other items at Leon Gold­stein HS in Sheepshead Bay called Wil­liam Fer­raro “weird.” He rubbed their hands when giv­ing change, mak­ing some girls un­com­fort­able, and then be­gan to woof.

“Arf, arf, arf, arf, arf,” one girl de­scribed Fer­raro’s sound. “Ruff, ruff, ruff, ruff,” an­other re­called.

The noisy vol­un­teer didn’t balk when con­fronted by of­fi­cers of the Spe­cial Com­mis­sioner of In­ves­ti­ga­tion, a re­port says. He started bark­ing at the in­ves­ti­ga­tors and asked, “Is that what you’re talk­ing about?”

Fer­raro, who worked at the school for two years, ca­ressed the hands of stu­dents “to make them feel bet­ter and re­lax af­ter a hard day at school,” he ex­plained.

He was told “to leave Gold­stein and not to re­turn,” the re­port says.
