Duck Season


Dianne Erdmann rescued a duckling after it was attacked by a crow. She nursed it back to health, fed it, bought it custom-made diapers and watched as it took its first flight. She even took it to work, and that's where she was when officers from the Washington Fish and Wildlife service came for the duck. It seems possessing a duck is illegal in the state, unless of course, it's dead. Her boss sent word that unless the officers had a warrant, they weren't going to turn over the duck. It didn't matter. The officers grabbed the duck, allegedly striking Erdmann in the chest. The duck is now in a state rehabilitation center, and Erdmann is trying to convince local prosecutors to indict the officer who she says struck her.
