Injured Twin Hills Park duck receiving treatment after rescue

Published: Friday, May 3, 2013 at 04:24 PM.

After Thompson rehabilitates the fowl, Bell — who said she has rescued horses, dogs and cats, "but never a duck” — will provide a home for the duck, which Thompson named Lucky.

Because the duck has one leg, it cannot run from snapping turtles, loose dogs or other Twin Hills Park dangers, and cannot be returned there, officials said.

Steele said he and his crew were glad to finally get the duck the rehabilitation it needs.

"There's a lot of facets to this job," he said. "It makes you glad when you're able to do some good for the community and sometimes for our animal friends."
