SEQUIM — A duck with a blow dart through its neck is avoiding capture by veterinary staff at Sequim’s Carrie Blake Park.

David Kolbo, this summer’s docent/host for the park, told the Sequim Gazette that he was told by “young people” at the park that about a month ago a group of teens were seen taking potshots at ducks with blow darts.

According to the Gazette, the staff at Greywolf Veterinary Hospital has offered to operate on the bird, but so far efforts to capture her have been unsuccessful.

“The bird is smart enough to not let anyone near her,” Kolbo said.
