Except For Duck, Officers Find No Signs Of Foul Play
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm David Greene. A Massachusetts woman heard a loud bang in her house and called police, thinking it was a home invasion. Officers arrived, did a search and found no signs of foul play - except a duck. It had come through the chimney and flown into a ceiling, leaving what police described as a perfect sooty silhouette. They released the bird into a nearby pond but are still seeking a positive identification. Guess it's not enough that it walks like a duck and talks like a duck. It's MORNING EDITION. Quack.
