In Des Moines, Iowa, hat sich am Freitag eine Riesenente losgerissen und ist, offenbar etwas angeschlagen, ihrer Wege gezogen. Ihr Name ist Quacky.
Quacky, owned by Youth Emergency Shelter and Services, became untethered from his temporary home at Two Rivers Marketing, 106 E 6th St. in Des Moines, around 7 p.m. and rolled approximately two blocks before coming to a halt.
„I am happy to report the duck is back home in its nest and very safe and undamaged,“ said Stephen Quirk, CEO of YESS.
No foul play is suspected. Quirk blamed the windy weather for the loose duck.
