Back in the Game

This handsome mallard duck is one tough customer. After being struck by a car and dragged across the asphalt, this duck made an awesome recovery here in the rehabilitation department at the Vermont Institute of Natural Science. See a video of his release.

In the accident, the duck suffered deep chest wounds and road rash covering a good portion of his back. After weeks of daily wound care, medications to ward off infection and tube-feedings, this drake is back in the game. Calling all female mallards: this fellow is single and ready to mingle.


  1. "Single and ready to mingle" Hilarious! You guys are awesome!

  2. Superb... You are the real explorer of the nature and its gifts. Great pace. Keep it up.
