That's One Tough Bird
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep with news of a bird that did not know the phrase dead duck. A hunter shot a duck in Florida. He threw it in the refrigerator and it was not until two days later that the hunter's wife opened the door and the duck lifted its head. It was alive. The duck that's now being called Perky was taken in for surgery. That's where it had a bad reaction to anesthesia. The duck was declared dead on the operating table, but was revived.
