Duck with blow dart stuck in neck found in Oregon City

OREGON CITY, Ore. - A man found a duck with a blow dart in its neck wandering in a pond behind his apartment.

Tim English likes to feed the ducks. He says he was shocked when he first saw the dart in the duck's neck but says it doesn't seem to be fazed by it.

"Hopefully, we can get someone out here from the humane society to care for her, because it does look like there's a little bit of infection on the spot that the dart is," English said. "I'd hate to see her lose her life because off a stupid action from somebody else."

Dove Lewis Animal Hospital says a wound like that needs to be seen immediately. KATU reached out to Clackamas County Animal Control Services. So far the TV station has not heard back, but it is a holiday weekend.
