Good news for the duck. There is also an interesting story linked to on that page about a chimp who escaped from its cage at the zoo and started doing janitorial work.

Yes, but let's be sure he's wounded and frightened first.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/veryangry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":grr:">

The article said the hunter's wife told their daughter to take the duck<br><br>
to the vet.Maybe they didn't like the idea of the dad/husband hunting.<br><br>
Still,I would really like to know what his reaction was.Probably nothing.

Story Highlights<br><br>
• Perky. stops breathing on vet's operating table, but is revived<br><br>
• The duck earlier had been rescued after two days in a hunter's fridge<br><br>
• The one-pound female is not likely to have further surgery<br><br><br><br>
TALLAHASSEE, Florida (AP) -- Perky is one tough bird.<br><br><br><br>
The ring-neck duck survived being shot and spending two days in a hunter's refrigerator -- and now she's had a close brush with death on a veterinarian's operating table.<br><br><br><br>
The one-pound female duck stopped breathing Saturday during surgery to repair gunshot damage to one wing, said Noni Beck of the Goose Creek Wildlife Sanctuary. (Watch Perky the duck live up to its name Video)<br><br><br><br>
Veterinarian David Hale revived the bird after several tense moments by performing CPR.<br><br><br><br>
"I started crying, 'She's alive!"' Beck said.<br><br><br><br>
Perky entered the headlines last week after a hunter's wife opened her refrigerator door and the should've-been-dead duck lifted its head and looked at her. The bird had been in the fridge for two days since being shot and presumed killed January 15. (Watch Perky after her first survival feat Video)<br><br><br><br>
Perky is recovering with a pin installed in the fractured wing, and probably will not have more surgery because of her sensitivity to anesthesia, Hale said.</div>

Umm, I wish I had the willpower to not open the fridge door for 2 whole days... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:"><br><br><br><br>
Poor little guy.. hope he continues to do well and has a wonderful, peaceful life at the wildlife sanctuary.

I think it's really weird how animals who survive being killed always seem to be allocated value as individuals all of a sudden. Like the animals at farm sanctuary, or the one's that somehow escape from slaughter houses. It's weird how they suddenly become valuable individuals and people are glad that they're alive.
