An elusive arrow-impaled duck has turned up once again in Parkersburg!

An elusive arrow-impaled duck once again has turned up in Parkersburg!

This is a story we first heard about a year ago, when we began receiving phone calls from concerned citizens who watched in horror as a duck in City Park waddled around with an arrow through its neck.  At the time, the duck did not <b><i>seem</i></b> to be in any pain.  By the time we got a videographer to City Park the duck had vanished.  Not even a feather.

We had almost forgotten about this report until early this week, when another couple spotted this duck.  This time, the duck was waddling around in Corning Park, off of Seventh Street.  It could not have been a coincidence, could it? 

Again, we sent a reporter down there to get shots of this duck...but it vanished once again.  Another "wild goose chase," you might say.

Evidently, this lucky (or unlucky) duck is <b>STILL</b> making its way around town, flaunting its brush with death. 

If you see this duck, please send a picture of it to photos@wtap.com, as we'd love to share it with our viewers.
