Tough Duck Stays Alive for 2 Days in Refrigerator After Being Shot
The duck would not die.
Wildlife officials said the feathered Lazarus had been shot by a hunter and put into his refrigerator for two days. That's when the hunter's wife opened the door and the duck lifted his head, giving her a scare.
The man's wife "was going to check on the refrigerator because it hadn't been working right and when she opened the door, it looked up at her," said Laina Whipple, a receptionist at Killearn Animal Hospital. "She freaked out and told the daughter to take it to the hospital right then and there."
The hospital's staff had the daughter take the 1-pound female ring-neck to Goose Creek Wildlife Sanctuary, where it has been treated since Tuesday for wounds to its wing and leg.
Sanctuary veterinarian David Hale said it has about a 75 percent chance of survival, but probably will not ever be well enough to be released back into the wild.
He said the duck, which has a low metabolism, could have survived in a big enough refrigerator, especially if the door was opened and closed several times.
Well heck, its only got a 75% chance of survival, and even then can't be released into the wild anyways. It's gotta die from something eventually, might as well be for something useful, like a good meal.

Breed it, We need all the surviving ducks possible, What with that bird disease killing off all the good stock.
I say give Daffy another chance - a life of comfort - with no refrigerators close at hand
Maybe - that fridge had a ''quack'' in the door seal ............ letting in some air LOL.

Any duck that tough deserves to be let go. Besides, it's an excuse to go out and bag another one. Sounds like this one ducked just in time.
The only thing that stops bad guys with guns is good guys with guns. SgtD
Sure thats a tough duck, but......
Why let it go, when you intedned on eating it anyhow?
I think ol' Daffy has earned himself a pardon.
But if he breeds much, duck hunting is going to get much, much harder.

After all that....... Give the duck a chance!!
EOD - Initial success or total failure
Still trying to figure out why he tossed an unplucked duck into the fridge!
I'm a child of the 60's, but I got over it.
Give beaks a chance. What I love is the hunter shoots the duck and still gets stuck with the bill.
It's obviously a zombie duck!
