LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) - For more than a month people have been trying to help a duck on Lake Sacajawea near Longview that had a blow dart through its neck.
But the duck could still swim and fly and got away from everyone trying to capture it - until Tuesday.
The Daily News reports Longview Parks Supervisor Curt Nedved and two employees were able to nab the wily waterfowl in a fishing net.
Nedved had to pull out the dart himself because the duck was tangled in the net. The bird is being treated at Ocean Beach Animal Hospital.
The duck had surgery Wednesday morning and veterinarians say it is now resting and recovering.
