LONGVIEW, Wash., Aug. 1 (UPI) -- Workers at a Washington state park said a duck has rejoined her fellow fowl after undergoing surgery for a blow dart wound to her neck.
Longview park workers said the duck was released Monday afternoon at Lake Sacajawea after it was captured with the 4.25-inch dart in its neck July 24 and underwent surgery to clean out the wound Thursday, The (Longview) Daily News reported Wednesday.
"She was a feisty duck. She was happy to go home, I'm sure," said Adrienne Myers, a technician at the Ocean Beach clinic where the duck was treated. She said the avian's wound was sewn up with absorbable sutures and was "healing well."
