"One tough duck" is back in the news again

Recommended Posts

Remember this duck story about a week ago. the one where the duck was still alive in the duck hunters fridge after two days, when his wife found it alive and rushed it to a animal care center

well, it's back in the headlines

Refrigerator duck plays Lazarus again

Bird that lived 2 days in fridge after being shot flat-lines in surgery, revives

Updated: 3:36 a.m. CT Jan 29, 2007

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Call her Lazarus — and then some.

The ring-neck duck has been shot by a hunter, rescued from two days in a refrigerator by his wife and — in its latest brush with death — resuscitated on a veterinarian's operating table.

The one-pound female duck stopped breathing Saturday during an operation to repair gunshot damage to her wing, said Noni Beck of Goose Creek Wildlife Sanctuary. Veterinarian David Hale performed CPR and managed to get the fractured fowl breathing again after several tense moments.

"I started crying, 'She's alive!'" Beck said.

Perky grabbed national attention last week after a hunter's wife opened her refrigerator door and the supposedly dead duck lifted its head and looked at her. The duck had been in the fridge for two days since it was shot and mistaken for dead on Jan. 15.

-----------------------

There's kids in this country that can't get medical care and they are spending this much time, effort and money on a duck that should have been stuffed, baked and eaten by now.

What the heck is this world comming to!!!

why a facility even exists for injured plentiful game species is beyond me. Kill it, eat it, then make a news story about it. Good grief.

Not to hijack the post, but today I read that "The Barbaro Fund" raised 1.2 million dollars for the family that bred and raised that horse. 1.2 million! I could use that money to pay for my school right about now (and about 60 other students). I mean, we are talking about horse racing people with millions of dollars, dozens of 6 figure horses, barns, acres and acres of pasture, and they set up a fund for them!

Count me as one of the people who really didn't care that much about the Barbaro situation, at least not on a day by day watch like the news seem to have since the Preakness.

I hear ya man--to spend that kind of money on something with those kind of odds...I think you're better off cutting your losses and training a new horse!

Even if the odds were better, it's just a horse. Now if it were a good hunting dog...smirk.gif Yeah it's sad for the family and trainers, but it certainly doesn't need to make national headlines day after day.

The federal rule CFR 50; 20.38

Possession of live birds.

"Every migratory game bird wounded by hunting and reduced to possession by the hunter shall be

immediately killed and become a part of the daily bag limit. No person shall at any time, or by any

means, possess or transport live migratory game birds taken under authority of this part."

The really funny part is the feds see this and DO NOT ENFORCE the rule...Hummmmmmmmmm Equality?

How nice by accepting this bird the vet is also in violation of this rule....Hummmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    • Good old Ebner's, they were there forever. I use to go there with my Dad right when they opened in the mornings back when I was like 12 years old, a long time ago! 😀   As far as Cabela's I'm just waiting for the day they change them all to BassPro shops!  😕
    • it's happening 
    • This team is for real, buckle up folks, it's gonna be a fun ride the rest of the season.
    • Mother Nature reminded some people in the north last weekend that winter was not quite finished. Pattison State Park received 3 inches of snow, but it did not last long as temperatures rebounded to the mid 50s after the storm. Memorial Day weekend has arrived and so has the green growth. A green up of vegetation and regular rains have lowered spring fire danger statewide. There have been reports of fox pups being seen, including this one near the Woodruff DNR Fish Hatchery. Fawns are also being seen. Remember keep wildlife wild and observe from a distance.Photo credit: Michelle WoodfordWater levels are still very high on the Wolf River system and a number of central Wisconsin lakes and local government officials have placed emergency slow no wake orders on some waters. Check with county or local officials before boating. .
    • Glad to hear the news for y’all down there. My bro was an Ebner’s customer;  I was MANY years ago when I frequented the area more.   Cabela’s?  There is no more Cabela’s. 😩
    • Here, until you get that shutter speed problem adjusted! 😄    
    • Up here in the Northwest Angle lines are tight and fish are biting! Water temps are warmer in the shallows at 50-52 degrees to upper 40’s in the main lake. Recent weather was not great but the fishing was. Some of the best action has been within a few miles of the lodge. Walleyes have been found anywhere from 3 to 30ft. 22-30ft with a jig and minnow is best during daylight hours.  Multiple trophy walleye were caught this week including a couple 28’s and one 31 inch.  The bite off of the dock late evening is really heating up and will produce limits. Come up soon to take advantage of great spring fishing!    Sunset Lodge
    • They have a good assortment of bobby garland crappie plastics, bunch of bass jigs and plastics, bunch of rapala's, VMC products!, bait, rods, reels and assortment of line.  They didn't have all the shelves filled yet but they are working on it with vendors or something like that...Good Luck!
    • I'll have to check it out as I drive through there quite a bit.  I'm with you on the Cabelas thing.  Its not the same as it use to be and I just don't like shopping there anymore.  I could spend hours in baits shops sometimes and probably spend a little too much too haha!  There's just something about buying gear from a real bait & tackle shop that I really enjoy.
    • Wow that's sickening.  The netting needs to stop.  This isn't the 1800's anymore.
