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.
