    If I shot that duck, he wouldn't have even made it to the fridge. There'd be a better chance of that duck "peking" out of the oven. Bitch.

    Let's hope there aren't any quacks among the Staff.

    I'm guessing the fridge wasn't that cold... still one tough duck

    If this duck was shot during a duck hunt, why the frell did they take it to the vet when it was found to be still alive...?!? Seems a bit silly... and why was it put in the fridge without being plucked and gutted in the first place...?

    This sounds like a "newspaper duck" to me...

    Now, I detest hunting when it's done for sports, but as long as you eat whatever you shoot, and stay away from endangered species, then it's fine by me...

    Don't be silly, if cheney was hunting, the duck would be as fit of a fiddle flying somewhere, and a junior aid would be in his fridge.

    The season shot is funny, I'd like to try it though.

    They should have just thrown in the duck in the oven. Roasted duck...yum.

    That season shot sounds really clever. I'm sure my mum would prefer it to plucking the duck when we bring them in! I would imagine the accuracy and range is affected though.

    Thats what I was wondering. If I saw that the duck was alive I would have just shot it again, not take it to the vet.

    This why I make sure what I hunt is dead before I take it home ( or to lab) with me.

    I know this will sound stupid considering my above statement but the guy should be charged with animal cruelty, he wounds an animal and it is alive two days later, it think that is just wrong.

    At least they did not start to pluck it while it was alive though.

    Yeah it is weird, I know whenever my dad hunts he cleans the birds/deer that same day/night. You don't just put the whole body in the fridge, and if your way to tired to clean them that night you certainly don't leave em for 2 days. Very odd.

    This story was at the end of every major news today, the afternoon editions, evening editions, all of them ended with this "dead duck in a freezer comes back to life" story.

    Reminded me of the "that squirrel can waterski" scene from Anchorman.

    Hope they didn't kill the duck after all that...the bird earned his life and should be set free....but knowing human they might want to study the duck to see if we could use his "abilities"

    Poor duck but a strong one.

    Seasoned shot? Holy cow, who dreamed that one up?


    (Wouldn't the individual pellets be coated with gunpowder? How do they survive firing without disintegrating? What is the meaning of life, the universe, and everything?)

    Soon, gangs are going to get a hold of season shot.

    The streets are going to be littered with corpses that smell like honey chicken. CSIs will get hungry. KFC's stock will rise.

    The duck beats death - again!

    Duck comes back from dead, again

    You can't keep a good duck down.
