When Dinner's Not Quite Done

Or Even Dead for that Matter...

From MSNBC.com:

Shot duck survives 2 days in refrigerator
Raises head when hunter’s wife opens door

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Neither gunfire nor two days in a refrigerator could slay this duck.

When the wife of the hunter who shot it opened the refrigerator door, the duck lifted its head, giving her a scare.

The man’s wife “was going to check on the refrigerator because it hadn’t been working right and when she opened the door, it looked up at her,” said Laina Whipple, a receptionist at Killearn Animal Hospital. “She freaked out and told the daughter to take it to the hospital right then and there.”

The 1-pound female ringneck ended up at Goose Creek Wildlife Sanctuary, where it has been treated since Tuesday for wounds to its wing and leg.

Sanctuary veterinarian David Hale said it has about a 75 percent chance of survival, but probably won’t ever be well enough to be released back into the wild.

He said the duck, which has a low metabolism, could have survived in a big enough refrigerator, especially if the door was opened and closed several times. And he said he understands how the hunter thought the duck was dead.

“This duck is very passive,” Hale said. “It’s not like trying to pick up a Muscovy at Lake Ella, where you put your life in your hands.”

Only a Floridian would put a live duck in their refrigerator.

Well, maybe a German would too. ;-)

Do they even have ducks in Deutschland?

According to a quick Google search I did on "German Ducks" yes they do.

Yeah, that was my thought too. I hunted pheasant a couple times years ago and you don't just toss an entire shot-up bird feathers and all in next to the Milk and Sweet Pickles.
