I just got an update on the unfortunate duck we found Tuesday: The duck has been captured, and is being treated at Wildlife Rescue for wing droop. The wing was not broken, but was strained, and it should be releasable within a few days.
Still no word back from the Parks Board regarding the fishing issue, but I will keep vigilant for further problems arising from this activity.
I’ll get Sara to check up on him when she volunteers on Saturday.
I heard from Sara that unfortunately the duck did not make it. The duck had a number of previous injuries in addition to the fairly sever puncture wound and the staff felt that the most humane action was to euthanize the animal.
That is a real shame. Thanks for the update.
