“Luck” for This Duck Doesn’t Describe It

A duck suffered multiple gun shot wounds in an apparent hunter attack. But that’s not all:

“The ring-neck duck survived being shot and spending two days in a hunter’s refrigerator — and now she’s had a close brush with death on a veterinarian’s operating table. The one-pound female duck stopped breathing Saturday during surgery to repair gunshot damage to one wing, said Noni Beck of the Goose Creek Wildlife Sanctuary.

Veterinarian David Hale revived the bird after several tense moments by performing CPR.

“I started crying, ‘She’s alive!”‘ Beck said.

Perky entered the headlines last week after a hunter’s wife opened her refrigerator door and the should’ve-been-dead duck lifted its head and looked at her. The bird had been in the fridge for two days since being shot and presumed killed January 15.”

This isn’t luck. You can’t be lucky and get shot at the same time. You manage to survive, but is that luck?
