    Do Not Eat This Duck!

    I admire a Fighting Spirit Survivor.

    Tough Duck Stays Alive for 2 Days in Refrigerator After Being Shot
    TALLAHASSEE, Florida
    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.

    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.

    I think ol' Daffy has earned himself a pardon.

    But if he breeds much, duck hunting is going to get much, much harder.

    Still trying to figure out why he tossed an unplucked duck into the fridge!

    Give beaks a chance. What I love is the hunter shoots the duck and still gets stuck with the bill.
