    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Neither gunfire nor two days in a refrigerator could slay this duck.

    When the wife of the hunter who shot it opened the refrigerator door, the duck lifted its head, giving her a scare.

    The man's wife "was going to check on the refrigerator because it hadn't been working right and when she opened the door, it looked up at her," said Laina Whipple, a receptionist at Killearn Animal Hospital. "She freaked out and told the daughter to take it to the hospital right then and there."

    The 1-pound female ring-neck ended up at Goose Creek Wildlife Sanctuary, where it has been treated since Tuesday for wounds to its wing and leg.

    Happy Update!

    “Perky the Lucky Duck” on display at Tallahassee Museum


    Remember “Perky the Lucky Duck?”
    The female ring-neck duck was shot by a Tallahassee hunter in January and put in the fridge for safe-keeping. When the hunter’s wife realized the duck was alive a day and a half later, she contacted wildlife rescuers at Goose Creek Wildlife Sanctuary. The duck survived.

    The Lord wanted this duck alive for some reason, thank God the wife had the daughter take it to the vet/animal hospital. I couldn't imagine looking in the fridge and seeing the poor thing look back at you.. it certainly beat the odds!! Now it's getting a second chance at life, maybe it will save someone's life one day; you never know..
