Mighty Duck Rescue

My oldest son comes running into the house yelling “duck is bleeding!” We love our precious duo so all of poured out of the house to see. And there was the female mallard with her leg stuck between two boards on a wood panel fence laying on the ground. She was sneaking some rabbit feed and got her foot stuck. Poor sneaky girl.

We quickly rescued her one holding her still another pulling back on the board to release her. I scooped her up and she hid her head in the crook of my elbow like she used to do when she was a little baby. We cleaned her scrapes and put some disinfectant on it. Then gently set her down. She shook her feathers then walked off to her feathered friends. And then took a long drink of water. She is walking fine. Hopefully she’ll heal from her scrapes quickly.
