Remember That Duck That Survived Two Days In The Fridge?

cky.jpegTallahassee, Florida -  Call him Lazarus — and then some. Veterinarians in Florida say a plucky duck that survived two days in a refrigerator after being shot by a hunter has done it again — this time after apparently dying on the operating table.

Perky had been shot earlier this month and put into the hunter’s refrigerator. That’s when the hunter’s wife opened the door and the duck lifted its head, giving her a scare.

Then, Saturday, Perky was declared dead during surgery, but veterinarians say it perked up a few seconds later after some chest compressions and oxygen.

Wildlife rehabilitator Noni Beck of Goose Creek Wildlife Sanctuary says the duck is sensitive to the anesthesia, and won’t be having surgery again anytime soon.
