Duck Hook

We watched this poor little duck for 3 days hanging out by our dock with a fish hook in it's upper bill. We just couldn't find a way to catch it until yesterday. It landed on our lawn with the hook, a bobber and 5 feet of line trailing behind. Julie threw it crackers and sweet-talked it to come closer,(she is good at that). I got behind and grabbed the fishing line and pulled it in. Neighbor George got the wire cutters while I held the duck and cut the hook out. I think he said thanks when he flew off, glad we could help.
