Woodbury Woman Takes Duck Home, Puts Animal in Her Bathtub

The encounter happened Tuesday.

A Woodbury resident found a duck waddling near her home Tuesday, took it home, and put it in her bathtub, where it went “quack, quack.”

According to a police report:

The woman, who lives at the 1700 block of Regatta Drive, told police she saw the duck flying around and land on a road near her house.

She helped the duck into her car and drove it home. There, she put it in her bathtub.

The woman called police to discuss the “highly unusual encounter.” She told officers that she was unsure if it was injured, but “stated that the duck went ‘quack, quack.’”

Police discussed several different options for handling the duck, and she eventually agreed to transport it to the Animal Humane Society.

This duck, and another are in the area quite a bit around Colby Lake area. We've seen them in our front yard a couple times. However, I can't say I'd ever transport it and bring it in my home.
