"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

      Dang, pulled the battery and put her in storage just last week or that sounds like fun. With all this wet weather it has really put me behind on getting all the fall chores done before hunting season and the winter hits and I need get the sled and ice stuff ready.  I had breakfast at Our Place just this morning coming down from Ely and was thinking of all the rides I have done in that area the last few years.  Lets try to set up a ride-trout outing next spring. 🙂

      Fishing Friday and Saturday was a dramatic shift. Seems the west wind got them going. Found a reef on Friday that was loaded up with fish and they were hungry. Fished it for a few hours before losing the battle to the cold. 3 pig smallies up top in 18-20 feet, 3 keeper walleyes between 16-18" and one 25" on the sides of the reef to the transition in 24-30 feet, and 2 jumbos off the transition in the mud at 32 feet. Also lost a BIG fish--the kind that your heart sinks when it comes off the line.    Saturday was more of the same. Biting a little lighter but we managed 6 walleyes from 15-19" in between the rain and getting blown off the lake. Could've easily limited if not for some "miscues"   Did try a little bit of trolling close to dark but only picked up a small muskie. Lots of guys out trolling all weekend but I'm not sure if they were going for walleyes or muskies. Interested to know if anyone on here was one of those guys and will give a report.    Wish I was starting my trip now instead of sitting at home. I think this is going to be a phenomenal week of fishing now that the weather is going to stabilize and warm up. Best of luck to everyone the rest of the year and stay safe. Saw some of the biggest waves I've seen on vermilion with the wind last week. Can get hairy pretty quickly out there

      We saw some late birds today also in west central MN.  The beans looked horrible and most corn was still in.  In 2 hours of driving I only saw three corn fields being combined each way.   We saw birds and got some roosters.  About 30% mature to 70% juveniles, not counting those late birds that didn’t fly well.  Birds seemed really jumpy today - odd for opener.  Flushing wild like late season.   Man, my pheasant legs ain’t what they used ta be! 😨

      I was wondering if raps at 2 mph would work now. Will the fish still chase them down when the water temps are in the low 40s?

      Thanks for the water temps. Unfortunately my depth finder temp gauge was correct.
